When I went to school the US didn't pay NZ taxes so how about you take off the GST and try again. You export stuff and still don't know that?

As for the rest of your posts and in your best interests, I'm not going to get into that here. If you want to cast aspersions, which can very easily be shot down it would be better for you to ring me, you have the number.

My choices of the Rocna 15 and the Suprene 25 came from the sizing charts. I have a 33' monohaul with 4.8 dispursement. I could be wrong with my picks, it happens.

I thought the Rocna had you at a 10kg. I'm guessing you have a decent length of chain so would think a 10 would be good. If you want a little more go the Supreme 25, if you want to head into the big area go a Rocna 15 or very serious with a Supreme 35. Each anchor is a little bigger in physical area each step so a handy incremental performance increase depending on your desires.

But don't forget about the physical size when not in use.

Rocna does have me at 4, although I am slightly over with the 4.8 displacement and the fine print reads if over go to hte next size. THat is why I went to the 15. I also figure a bit bigger is better?
Flying to ME for six weeks and will buy in US and carry back. Anyone ever carry an anchor in their luggage?

I've carried a Fortress 37 to Thailand. Most airlines give you 2 checked bags at 23kg each. You should have no problem. How is customs in Grenada? In Thailand you can carry whatever you want into the country duty-free it seems, but if you ship they will charge 30% plus 7% VAT plus, plus... In addition you get to pay duty on your shipping costs!
