    I wanted to bounce a bridle question off of you and Drew Frye (though I can't find his contact). re. Stretch / Length / Damping.
    I cannot readily do the "full boat length" solution. I saw one guy suggesting large bore dyneema (yeah, I know) with speargun rubber inside.
    I know another splicing rubber into his 3 strand.
    Both solutions to give more "stretch" in the same bridle.
    Has anyone played / tested this that you know of?
    Have you seen any comments on Stretch vs Damping?

    Hi Steve,
    Thanks for the latest. I know there were some surprising result differences between the large and smaller versions of tested anchors and for example our Excel 47# did much better in the veering tests vs the small anchor tests. Given that most of the anchors in the small group were 20 or 21lbs, are you interested in a 20lb Excel #2 to put in this group? It’s only 3lbs heavier than a #1 but that equates to almost 20% heavier and my hope is it will give a more accurate comparison to the current “leaders” in the that group.
    If you’d like, I’m. Happy to send you one.
    Let me know.

    Hope all is well, we are looking forward to more testing this season. Late summer we will have a new product. If your interested we would like to give you first crack at testing it.
    Secondly, is it permissible for Spade anchor to use a portion of your Testing results video in advertising?
    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Hey Steve, Ned from Manson Anchors, what's your email contact? I'll send you a shank to test if you like?
    My email is ned (at)
    Hope the Supreme's looked after you.
    Have a great day

    Hey, Steve. How are you doing? I am still poking away at Javelin, but slowly, due to child care. I sure did appreciate the photos that you sent me. In one of them, when you were aboard, we were in Elliot Bay, Seattle, sailing in company with the last paddle wheel commercial vessel in the PNW. that vessel is now a marine exhibit in anacortes. Just checking in, as I have not been on this site for a long time.

    Hey, I forgot to tell you to say Hi to Lynn for me.

    Hey, Steve. Just got your message on CS forum. I am in the midst of building a 36' DE staysl schooner. Javelin started out as a 30 gaff cutter, but stuff kind of got carried away. I am in Goose Creek SC at the moment, taking care of my 2 1/2 yr old grandson, whose mother went off a really deep end a year ago. My son is in the Navy, so he had to have a care giver. I packed my pickup and drove down here the week before Xmas last winter. He should be done here in January, so I can get back to Maple Falls WA and work on my schooner. Glad you have a little one. The world needs good Dads and I am pretty sure you will be one.
