Question Box anchor size?

Does anyone have any experience with the slide/box anchors? I was wondering if the small box anchor would work fine for my boat, it says for up to 30' boat but doesnt say anything about weight. I dont want to lug around a huge anchor if i dont have to.

The boat is an 01 sunsation 32 dominator 6500lbs dry.

I used the large for my 33' PowerPlay, it worked great, better safe than sorry, a dragging anchor is no fun.

get the large. They work great but you will need the larger one. It is not that big or heavy

I have the large. I still drag on my lake. My lake is a B*tch to anchor. I throw a large fortress of the back as well. Alot of wind an I always get loose.

I use a small I also have 6' of chain attached which they say is not needed. Works perfect for my boat and has held when another 3 or 4 boats have tied up to me with them not thowing an anchor out.

I have one I have used on the last 3 boats 22- 38ft. Its the large and its fantastic. Set it and forget it. In my home lake, sand and clay you have to get on top of it to get it back up. Everyone I know with one loves them. if you dont I will take it for my stern!
