That is a substantial ground tackle. On our Beneteau with a windlass, I installed 20' of 5/16' G4 galv. chain with 200' of 9/16" 3-strand nylon spliced to the chain, no shackle, to feed thru the gypsy of the windlass. Anchor is a 22# Delta plow style anchor. It holds. I also rigged an anchor ball and trip line to mark the location and to pull out backwards if it gets fouled.Just the 5/16” X 6’ pinner chain that came with the 300’ of anchor rode that I ordered… my plan is to increase the chain size to 3/8” and use 10’ of it. I was surprised that this little anchor has held as well as it did.
Ya, the anchor locker was a little dirty.
In the diagram above, the guy should be pulling as he passes over the the anchor to pull it out backwards.
