Does a small aluminum fishing boat (16.5 ft.) need an anchor chain? I bought one for my new 15lb. tri-fluted river anchor but I'm going to get one of those Scotty anchor locks so it's easier to deploy and pull up the anchor so that even my wife could do it and whenever you see those in pictures it never shows an anchor chain, just the anchor line attached direct to the anchor. Of course if a chain is necessary I'd do it and just pull up until the chain comes to the anchor lock and lift the anchor into the boat.

For a boat that size an anchor rope is sufficient.  Walmart sells anchor ropes.

Yup, already have the 3/8" 100ft. braided anchor line. If the chain isn't necessary for my boat I'll just attach the rope directly to the anchor...would make using the Scotty Anchor Lock more simple.

I use just the anchor & only 30' of rope 😉
