I would always recommend at least two anchors. In decades of cruising and thousands of anchorings along the east coast (Maine to Key West and Punta Gorda), we have not yet lost an anchor. IF we did we, I would like to know I had another immediately ready. We primarily use a 44# Manson, and have a 44# Bruce in the starboard side anchor locker with its own separate rode. We have a smaller Fortress at the stern, but have never used that one.
