I got the new boat home on Saturday, and can hardly wait to get it in the water. Took it up to "Carp Coastal Marine", in Grant, for a new Minn Kota iPilot install, batteries, on board charger, etc. I will begin putting all of my gear into it this weekend and hit the water first thing next week.
It is a Sea Pro, SV2100, with Merc 150 Verado. My question... What type and size of anchor should I use? How long should I make the anchor rode? What type of rope is best... twisted nylon or braided nylon... for the rode? I know I need a length of chain and I plan to drill a hole in the base and attach the chain to the shank and eye, with zip ties, for backing it out if it gets hung. I have a 7lb and a 13lb fluke type anchor, which should/could I use??
I live in the Sebastian area and plan to fish the lagoon and near shore on good days.
THANKS IN ADVANCE!
