Interestingly enough though, West Marine posted this recall
on Rocna anchors, much to their credit, BTW.
It was not recall. It the "product specification notice" referred to in my original post. Big difference. WM has many recalls listed on their site.
I guess West Marine could have been lying to me but that does not make sense to me as it would greatly increase their liability from what have been nothing to whatever a boat and possibly lives would be worth.
