A "FIRST CLASS" ANCHOR COMPANY !!!!

I just wanted to let everybody know what a "class act" Steve MANSON is......

MANSON ANCHORS donated a new MANSON SUPREME to the Tampa Bay Sailing Squadron (thru West Marine) that was given away as a "door" prize after raising money thru the sale of tickets.

And I might add, our new MANSON SUPREME handled "perfectly" during the weekend on the committee boat during the Gasparilla Sailing Regatta.

THANKS, STEVE!

This is what I have been saying all along about marketing. Especially in the area of anchors. I am more apt to purchase from a person with reasonable and kind words rather than someone that is vindictive and harmful words.
Steve's heart is in the right place. Happy to see someone contributing to the sailing community.

And the way everybody was "swarming" around that MANSON SUPREME in the clubhouse (with West Marine reps explaining that THEY had one on their boat!) I wouldn't be a bit surprised if they had a BIG weekend selling ANCHORS!

It appears that Manson Anchors knows what the term "donate" means. Sounds like a great company.
Kind Regards,

I find that WM reps had a Mason Surpreme on their boat very humourous since they sell Manson's compeditors anchor. What does that say!

It is rather humorous.........they obviously like the MANSON SUPREME over the ROCNA considering the price difference.......

I bought my MANSON SUPREME from West Marine, also......

and so far, I made the right decision for me...... LUV the SUPREME!

Thanks for the kind words Gents.
I do have to admit to being a slightly one eyed sailor and helping out yacht clubs is something that is as much of a personal thing as a marketing thing.

Not sure what its like in the U.S. but clubs here in NZ need all the support they can get and we're keen to help out in what little ways we can.

I sent "a competitor" information about our non-profit yacht club that does sail training free for kids (adults too but at a cost). We have a couple of International Folkboats that we conduct training with. We do anchor drills. Each has a CQR and a couple of Danforths and would like to use something else to compare. We'd like to test another anchor so that maybe our 165 club members might get some good info on what the "best" anchor might be. I mentioned "non-profit volunteer" and they mentioned "donate." To make a very long story short, they sent a price list including shipping. That's not what I had in mind for the definition of donate so we'll be using our old anchors.

If you folks have actually given an anchor as a donation you are much more of a class act than your competitor. So, I'll keep Manson in mind.

Kind Regards,

JohnL
