How about a Fortress Aluminum anchor? I think the 8 lb model is the right size for that boat and would be way easier for her to handle. Work great too.

Pick the achor size you need,,,, then go up one.

any will hold on a bring sunny calm day.

I want the one that holds in high winds and heavy waves when I lost my engines that I have thrown over 30 seconds before my boat is thrown up on the rocks !!!!!

I have the small box anchor for my Cig and it works great. I also had the small box anchor for my 31' and it worked great. The good part about them is that anyone can easily pull it right up and you don't need a chain or a ton of rope.
