28' boat in the PNW -- 100' chain, 200' rope. Anchor in 25' of water with 25' vertical, 50' horizontal on the bottom. Wind comes up, 25' on the bottom, 50' at a varying angle, but have never hit a straight pull to the anchor. If we did we would have put out more chain for the bottom, more rope for the scope.
60' of water -- 100' of chain on the bottom, 200' of rope, no worries.
40' boat in the PNW -- 220' all chain, wouldn't think of doing anything else.
