Who needs a boat? Just put sails on it. You WIN!

Re: Anchors...

That doesn't look like the last generation anchor everybody talk about. The weight is probably not according to spec either. Best to triple up with one Manson and one Rocna in additon to be safe!

Re: Anchors...

It looks to me like they have mistakenly ordered the Australian model.

The northern hemisphere version has the fluke on the other side
