Question recommendations for an anchor?

New boat arrives shortly (Donzi 35ZR) starting to get ready to outfit it.

Question is any recommendations for an anchor? Boating will be in the Chesapeake Bay (sand and mud bottom), any thoughts on type, brand and weight would be appreciated.

Thank you.

I agree...do a search on the Box Anchor. I gave my Fortress away after a season with the Box Anchor.

Box Anchor hands down. I have been using one for years, and love it. Ask Docmanrich37 how well mine works compared to his.

I just placed an order on the box anchor. Are you guys not using chain with this anchor?

I bought the recomended size.
