"Thus the boat could move 400 (with a scope of 200 out) and the alarm would not sound".

Why would you want the alarm to sound within that 400 foot diameter of your anchoring area?

The only time it may be be an advantage, would be in crowded anchorages where another boat is dragging your anchor, and they are pulling your boat against the wind/current towards the original anchor position.

Under any other case you will be outside that 400 foot circle if your anchor drags.
