Spade in Australia ?

We were hoping to pick up a Spade anchor this summer in New Zealand, but we struck out. I know this is a long shot, but does anyone know of any Spade 140's in steel available in Australia? I've checked eBay Australia and run some google searches, but so far, no luck.

Are you saying you could not find a new spade, or you have been looking on the second hand market? There was a spade on the market not so long ago. I can remember because it was called something else and I pointed it out to GMac for a laugh.
If you want new, I am sure someone can send you one. But freight maybe a killer.
I don't if spade is exported. Can I also suggest you look at the Manson Supreme. It seems to be a fine anchor and a lot here have had good results.

For God so loved the world..........He didn't send a committee.
