Do You Anchor?


New Member
Will be sailing mostly SoCal bays/harbors and I'm shopping for the right all-purpose anchor (mud/sand/pebbles/rocks) so the kids and I can jump in and snorkel or cool off. Thought a small mushroom would do it but YouTube reviews show they just drag. Danforth kinda edgy takes up larger footprint in cuddy, snags stuff - cheap easy to find does ok. best review I saw was the Mantus 2.5# - pricey but really digs in. You guys have any experience anchoring in ocean where waves and current are the concerns?
