Rule 35 (d) states:
(d) A vessel engaged in fishing, when at anchor, and a vessel restricted in her ability to maneuver when carrying out her work at anchor, shall instead of the signals prescribed in Rule 35(g) sound the signal prescribed in Rule 35(c).

The answers above show that the fishing boat is actually engaged in fishing, so instead of sounding the anchor alert sound it can sound the fog signal every two minutes. The vessel restricted in its ability to maneuver, however, is ~not~ described as being engaged in her work. If she's not working, she's just another power-driven vessel and should sound fog signals for being at anchor.

The rule3 define a RAM as

(g) The term “vessel restricted in her ability to maneuver” means a vessel which from the nature of her work is restricted in her ability to maneuver as required by these Rules and is therefore unable to keep out of the way of another vessel.

So a RAM is only a RAM when it is working... A dredge not dredging is just a PDV, it is not also a RAM.

It is not physically possible to sail a boat while at anchor. There is no such thing as a 'Sailing vessel at anchor'. Once a sailing vessel anchors, she must drop her sails and then becomes a 'vessel at anchor'.
