How long is your chain? The longer the better..............

Few people who own runabouts know how to properly set an anchor...

Three feet of chain should be good.  My guess is you need to pay out more anchor line...and then even more in wind.

I would use more in general. First off, are you on a lake or ocean? I would talk to the boaters in your area. They can tell you the type of bottom and alike.........

The chain does 2 things, keeps the shank down so the anchor will not pull out. Also, will act as a shock absorber on a windy day.

On a lake 6 to 8 feet, on the ocean 15 to 20 feet of chain. But thats me.............
