Are these Electricaly polished??
It seems a shame to drop them to the sea floor and have them scratched.

Hand polished.

I'm not even supposed to be showing these, since the subject itself isn't even available yet...





But it's just too pretty!

I shall restrict myself to the close-ups and not the full frame shots. Maybe.

If you aren't supposed to be showing these pictures yet will this put your job at risk? The company I work for takes IP theft very seriously and would fire (and possiby prosecute) an employee that posts pictures of pre-release product. I will say the difference may be we live on the hype and anticipation of what products are coming next.

Frank, he is the company.
And no it's not a Delta David.

Craig, so why the change in curve of the spade? I thought you guy's were of the opinion that way up didn't work as well. Or is that secret squiril stuff still yet.

Dang that's so highly polished, I can't work out which way up the shape is, but it looks like the normal ??? Infact..... it looks closer to mine now than ever. Hey, I don't have to argue with you about copying now do I ;-) :-)

It may not be as beautiful as Wheel's piece of art, but here's one my brother and I whipped up in the garage over the weekend. It will be on its way to the galvanizer in a day or two:

I would post more pictures, but I don't want to make Craig jealous

Craig, it's obviouse what you'd find wrong with it. It doesn't have Rocna printed on the side of it ;-) :-)

Hey Zephyr, can I interest you in some prints I copied of a sticker on the side of this flash shiney anchor I saw ;-)

Aren't boats already expensive enough, now we've got to contend with bling :-)

I recently cut a siezed shackle with bolt cutters. No muss, no fuss.

Has anyone ever powder coated an anchor? It's very durable and you can get any color including chrome and bright gold....now that would be bling!
