    What's the bike for? To cycle back along the road after you have dragged aground to get a tow off?

    that's interesting, I can't find anything about the manufacturer. Must be very new.

    EDIT

    No, I tell a lie. Tern-anchor.com.

    Tern-anchor.com is registered in China. Shanghai to be precise, by a Mr Wei Li. If you look up his company,

    http://spbedcl.en.china.cn/

    you see this gem.

    "Shanghai Pangtong Business Enterprise Development Co., Ltd. is a modernized professional stainless steal decoration product corporation..."

    The anchor claims to be named after a diving bird - though the picture shows a GANNET

    http://tern-anchor.com/product.asp


    To be a bit picky, as one is dealing with a highly technical, mission-critical item, one might hope that the designer will be able to tell the difference between 'pressure' and 'tension'.

    " it can go nowhere else but into the seabed when the rode pressure is applied. "


    Gestation of technically advanced marine products is typically many many years, and all potential users should be grateful that the company has spent nearly seven years in the design process, before deciding to go public with production.

    "The Tern Anchor story began in 2006 as a design project to find an effective, simple design for a New Generation Anchor that would outperform the traditional anchors available."




    And what a well-crafted set of exclusions on the warranty page !

    And mightily relieved will we all be to know that the shank of the galvanised version is made of reliable, proven Q620.



    So let's get this straight, Grant, old r*c*d*v*st fruit cake, do you have anything, anything at all, to do with the manufacture, or promotion, or selling of this anchor. As Private Eye says, I think we should be told.

    I think, therefore I am. I am, therefore I sail.
