    The OP is talking about a 16' boat with a small o/b, which he just wants to use "for pottering about, visiting beaches and a little light fishing". And he clearly rules out overnighting.
    What's wrong in telling him that the cheapest anchor he'll find, with a few meters of chain and some rope, will be more than good enough?
    HOW VERY DARE YOU - using common sense on an anchoring debate! I intend to get you banned for being sensible!

    Saw some interesting YouTube vids on the subject. Might be worth searching them out.

    TBH, all the Raggies & Stinkies I've actually met (as opposed to virtually annoyed) have been the most remarkably pleasant & interesting people. And have had quite similar views (if not on politics, religion, global warming, anchoring, ColRegs, waders . . . . . etc!)

    Yup, I can second that.
    But it's a long winter, we're all bound to be a bit virtually annoyed in this hemisphere these days, aren't we...?
