39' Californian on Columbia w/H20 Danforth?

I am getting my sea legs underneath me with this boat that I bought a month ago. The PO said that I might want a larger anchor. From what I read, the H20 Danforth is large enough for my 39' Californian?? Presently, I have 180' of rode, mostly line with 10' or so of chain. I havn't tried anchoring yet and my concerns, of course, are with dragging anchor. I will be boating mostly in the Lower Columbia. What input do any of you have on the size of this anchor vs. my needs with this boat? More rode? More anchor (35lb?, more?)

Thanks,

sam

Sam, you might get better results with this posted in the Anchoring section. Many folks have good info and strong opinions about anchors and rode and you're likely to start a great discussion.
