    I have a 21ft SJ also and use the 25lb Richtor anchor, it holds pretty good for the most part but it will drag at times.

    The Kenai river Anchor is a pretty good one.Also called the RL river anchor.
    They come in 2 different sizes. Works great on the Kenai and many boats also use them in cook inlet on their Halibut boats.

    If you put about 5 to 10 feet of chain on your anchor it will work a lot better. I got the vinyl coated chain, does not make to much noise and does not scratch the boat.

    Yeah I do the chain thing. I don't like a lot of rope out to stop the boat. Some spots are tight and not much room for a boat to come by when I'm anchored. I try to use as little as possible. I still hear that one anchor from sentry works great but just like a feed back from more before I buy.

    Thanks for responses
