Cruisers Forum,

Hey Guys,
I've been told about ya'll for awhile but never made the journey to check you out till now. Glad I did. This site is more in tuned to what I'm hoping to do and get help with. I love the looks of some trawlers and sailing really isn't my thing. I'm hoping to rack your brains in the months to come and will gladly divulge and aid I can.i had a project I was working on and really still am but jumped too soon into a boat project I wasn't ready for so I traded down and now have two smaller boats to fix up. One is just replacement of new parts,steering cables,throttle and cables,seats,fuel tank and such. The other has a small cabin but no electrical inside.i think it's about 22ft long.its a complete floor and everything but the hull is good. I'm hoping to cruise it to Florida and back next year from Texas. The original motor is an 85hp but I plan to buy a newer model and about a 90 to 130hp to replace it. What do you think. I know it's a small boat to go very far with so I'll most stay close to shore till I can get a 33 or bigger.

Which motor you get is irrelevant.

Which anchor to get is the burning question you need to ask.

One example of every anchor should be fine...

Sounds like a good plan. there is a book by a guy who did a similar trip in a 25' Grady White
Along the Edge of America by Peter Jenkins

If the bow is not shipping green water due to the array of anchors, you don`t have enough anchors.

Welcome Aboard! As you can guess from the comments so far, anchors are a favorite topic. The problem is if you ask which anchor should I use, you'll start a never ending argument. My friend Capt. Bill is obviously a trouble maker.
The answer is always the same, your anchor is too small, it's the wrong kind and you don't have enough chain.
