Re: Mantus Anchors NEWS: anchor sizing tool

Thanks Greg although I would make a few suggestions.

1. Your ranges are 35-40, 40-45. You might want to make it 35-39 or 41-45 etc. A 40 ft. boat could be in either range although I would naturally go higher.
2. Less than 20,000lbs and less than 40,000lbs seems like a huge range. My boat is just over 20,000lbs

BTW, I already own a 65lb Mantus as a storm anchor. Great anchor.

And a question. Why not weld the bolts to the anchor? A couple less things to lose and it should not affect the storability of the parts. Or maybe some sort of clevis pin system where the pins can be lashed to the parts.
