Assuming you are on a boat and you are using a standard sized anchor, then if the water is 20 feet deep you'd use 20 feet of line.

A boat weighs the same as the water it displaces i.e. the volume of the boat that sits below the water.

To kedge or kedging is the act of setting an anchor by dinghy or by wading out away from a grounded boat and heaving towards the anchor until the boat is pulled into deep enough water to be able to float freely!This could be repeated a number of times if necessary to free the boat.
