Choosing an anchor

Opinions on which anchors are the best are many and varied. Tests have been carried out by manufacturers and independent testers with mixed results.Generally all modern anchors hold well in a consistent sandy bottom with a straight pull. Unfortunately the sea bed is not consistent and it is obviously difficult to assess first hand. Also surface conditions can change so for boats anchoring overnight or being left unattended it is important that the anchor resets if the direction pull on the anchor changes appreciably.
