I think you will find that a Rusty Rocna with a bent tip is the norm.

Will I need an agent to purchase one?

Agent fees for anchoring are a complete rip-off and anybody who pays them a girls blouse. Real sailors do-it-themselves; nailing the chain to the seabed (after finding someone to type out the nails). It only takes 24 hours and is the best way of endearing yourself to your host nation. Of course this does not apply to boats under 6' long or with a displacement of under 10kg so real sailors just make up new details.I love deadlines. I especially love the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.

Too little data
I think it depends on whether you will spend more than 186 days in the country in the 4th quarter of the year! Can't be definite but think I read something on here to that effect.blog at http://www.ronautica.co.uk

Either way, you'll be in contravention of Col Regs No. 417,236 section 184.108.40.206 sub-section 25-14/3 para 1.a (iii-b). Utterly irresponsible. Unless of course the vessel itself is nailed to the seabed, above the high-water mark, with nails purchased in Turkey or imported prior to 1st July 1907 or made of exempt material, and you have lowered your ensign at the same time as the nearest gulet, in which case it's fine.Nobody is perfect. I am nobody. Therefore I am perfect.

Perhaps this would be suitable:
although I've heard these "modern designs" set a lot fasterhttp://sunflythesabre.wordpress.com/ - simply messing about in boats.
