Best anchor type for inland waters

    Hi all, here is my next newbie question. My boat, a 27 ft GRP cruiser, is intended for use on the Shannon system (lakes & rivers & canals). It does not have an anchor. I am bewildered by all the different anchor designs. Any suggestions on the optimal anchor type for this type of underwater terrain would be very welcome. Also, guestimating the boat to have a weight of circa 1400-2000 kg, are particular anchor sizes & weights recommended? Also, for freshwater, is galvanized steel a reasonable choice? :confused:
