    I have rowed a 16'X48" boat for the last three years. Most of the rowing that I have been doing has been at summer low or near summer low water. Since we have had high water this spring I have noticed that I am having a harder time anchoring up and when I do stick I swing a lot. I know that it is obvious that it will be harder to anchor up in heavier water, but I see other people not having as much of a problem. My anchor is 35lbs and I don't think that I want a heavier one. Since a 54" boat sits higher will it have less problems anchoring even though it is larger?

    Thanks,
