I'm making two 16" from 1/4" X 3". Would that be over kill for a 20ft pontoon?

I made a collapsible 18" box anchor. It holds pretty good.

I have bad shoulders so pullin up heavy anchors is difficult for me. I been lookin at these! Seem to be a nice compromise and should work on my 16.5 foot boat. Should have less drag pullin up thru the water! smile
