    For a 290 SLX size boat. Currently using a Lewmar 4 pound claw with 50’ feet of line. No chain.

    Was disappointed Fortress does not make a baby anchor like maybe an FX-4 model. 7 is as small as they go and that is my bow anchor.

    I have used West Marine traditional anchors for years. I use a 13 pound for my main anchor and it has always held well. I keep an 8 pound for a spare. They make a 4 pound as well that I'd like to try for throwing off the back but I havent gotten one yet.
