Here's a question.

Lets say your out on the big water and you break down in 5-7ft seas. Is it a good Idea to throw anchor with a large amount of line, or better off floating till help comes?

How about if caught at sea in a Lightning storm? Someone told me to shut everything down, motors, electonics etc, and wait it out?
Depends on how far you are from shore, jetty, etc. . . .
If you're in open water, big seas, high winds, go for the sea-anchor.
Closer to shore, jetty, etc., get your best ground tackle offboard, with as much scope as humanly possible ( in extreme cases, you can start tying in your 12ft dock-lines ( mooring ) to your ground tackle. Scope is huge is desperate situations. . . . makes a small anchor into a big anchor . . . .

Also . . . in an emergency, you cannot overestimate the benefit of sinking real weight, close to your anchor but above the chain . . . . whatever that weight may be ( in a crisis situation, a marine battery may really help to keep you 'off the rocks' ), . . . If ( god forbid ) you have NO chain on your rode ( box-anchor aficionados are out of luck ) . . . tie off your 'weight' as far north of the anchor as possibe, to maximize the straight-level draw.
