Love! my anchors. Bought, one, 8 lb anchor, two years ago @ the Newport, RI Boat Show. It worked so well, I bought another at the same show this year for my 19 ft center console boat with a 115 hp E-TEC Evinrude engine.
I have a challenging anchoring situation at a place called Boat Beach on the Westport River in Westport, Massachusetts. One has to anchor the stern at an accurate position as your coming in perpendicular to the beach. There is a strong current running parallel to the beach and there are other boats close by. It works perfectly every time on the sandy bottom.
When I assembled the anchor I used Never-Seeze [ http://www.neverseezproducts.com/marine.htm ] instead of the grease supplied. Probably didn’t have to do that, because I don’t ever plan to take it apart, but you know how engineers are.
I like your ‘Team’
