Nice job FB..if I knew you were lookin I'd have offered up my Don Hill 10" minidrifter with trailer..primo on both. YIKES..a 27 lb chain anchor..IMHO way too much for that craft in where you'll put her. For the rivers I wouldn't anchor mid-stream..did it once on the Yak and scared the shit out of me..have a very sharp knife handy. For near shore 15 lb should suffice on moving water..get her to the bank, drop the hook, and fish the bar or seam. For still water 2 anchors, fore and aft in the 7-10 lb should be good. PM Ford Fenders and Feltseoul for suggestions on the still waters..IMO a couple of the guru's here. Just a little boat with one or two in her..be careful.
