Well, I finally get to see with my eyes what I experience with my nice aluminum anchor. It’s light, shiny and pretty. I have a good set of chain on it and it still doesn’t bite well unless I let out enough scope. Forget short roping it. PITA sometimes. Looks like I’ll be shopping for a Bruch that can fit my anchor locker.

many years of seatime tells me you want a Danforth if you want an emergency anchor as nothing holds as well in high winds assuming you have properly matched the anchor weight to your boat size and have adequate rode as you need a lot of scope with a Danforth. If you read the foregoing you will get an idea of what is wrong with aluminum, namely folks want it because its light and easy to pull and believe they get the benefits of a larger anchor. Under some conditions that may be true but its not in all cases.

Overall for short fishing trips there are better choices than a Danforth, less scope so easier to get on a spot, less swing, and easier to pull out of the muck. But if I am overnighting off sandy beaches (and sandy beaches are preferred for overnighting for obvious reasons) I by far prefer a two Danforth anchor system bow and stern. Thats so a wind shift doesn’t pull the anchor.

STOP WASTING TIME ON THE WATER!
