My boat has a folding grapnel type anchor. As my proposed cruising area will be off Altea, Spain. Can someone please tell me if this is suitable. I am guessing not.

The guess is pretty accurate -- if you mean an anchor like this

Small ones are useful for a dinghy because when folded they won't damage the inflated tubes.

The Colvic's 2.5 ton displacement needs an anchor around 35lb - with at least 100ft of 5/16th chain then the nylon rode.
