Anchor Tests

Check out: www.rutuonline.com and follow the link for contact of Glen Ashmore, etc.
This guy is selling spades for approx 30% less than the discount houses. He bulk imports Spades direct from the french manufacturer who builds them in Tunisia; but, you have to wait until he sells a full palett load. He''s been selling Spades (mostly on the newsgroup: rec.boats.cruising) for the past 18 months. I bought a 44 lb. steel spade from him and it arrived about 2 months after I ordered (partial payement to order, balance when it arrives in the USA, etc.)
BTW - the orange paint immediately turns grey when immersed in saltwater.... so you can tell if its used or not.
I LOVE my spade anchor.... got some CQRs for sale.
