Here's a thread about it...

Read all the way through... there are cons to the set up.

PS... it takes a WHILE to drill through the galvanized fluke.

The OLE only one ever.

The only time I had to cut the rope was when a wreck anchor was on the other end.. The wreck anchor will work fine for you. Just wasn't our day I guess cause many folks use them. I finally bent a fluke anchor after 8yrs. of fishing last year.

But will a fluke anchor or a wreck anchor work the best in the rocks at the edge?

I'm a big fan of the claw anchors for anchoring on natural bottom. Rig it the way Jimt suggested and you shouldn't have many problems. Most of them come with the hole already drilled in the base.

Chris, the ones I use are 7.5"x3/16", they don't have a # rating. I'm using them w/ an 18# anchor w/ 16' of chain for a Wellcraft Coastal 238 w/a cuddy. I usally use 4 . I only got it stuck once that I had to try to break it. Seems to be about right for my setup. 175 sounds pretty strong? My .02
