Re: spare anchor

To me personally, it devalues a brand to keep plugging it in a forum. But I don't have an issue as long as it's overt and reasonable - I am just cognizant of the source and, unless there is some true value in the post, I regard it like a sales brochure.

The posts that I find irritating are the covert (sometimes difficult to tell) and the irrelevant ("what cruiser should I buy" - "well our daysailer would suit you fine" - I exaggerate but not by much).

It's the internet and you have to look at the source. I'd like less commercialism but I'm not holding my breath.

As for the anchor question - There a lot of opinions out there. Read the anchor threads and comparison articles and go one size bigger than you think you want. Anybody want to talk about guns?

Edit: looks like James said much of the same while I was typing.
