Info for the next edition of storm tactics handbook

Over the next year or so Larry and I are trying to gather information for an updated version of Storm Tactics Handbook. As part of that we just reviewed the Storm tactics DVD and made a list of questions we wanted to make sure to answer. One of those is definitely, how to source and inspect and access potential para-anchors. If any of you know of manufacturers of para-anchors other than, Fiorentino, Coppins, Para-tech international who we already know about, can you let us know. Also, if you read the Storm tactics book and have some questions we should address, we'd be pleased to hear those too.

We're presently at our homebase in New Zealand and this Decembers winds have almost had us wishing for a storm anchor to hold Larry's boatshop in place. Looking forward to the regatta season here, Thelma has had her rigging updated and looks fast. Taleisin is safe and sound in Alemeda, California (you can see pics of her at

Thanks for any imput.
