Indeed. After this I will never even consider a Mantus. Never.

Re: Mantus anchor raffle

That brings up a question I've been wondering about; does Mantus Anchors own this site?
They seem to be the only ones who can advertise with impunity, in the form of a post, on any forum.

Re: Mantus anchor raffle

Well certainly did not want to cause this kind of response....
In-fact I was expecting something else entirely...
My apologies.. I guess...

Re: Mantus anchor raffle

Businesses who pay to advertise are allowed to post about their business in the forums, in their signatures, user names, etc. If you run Adblock, perhaps you don't see their giant banner at the top of the page?

Personally, I'm happier to see Mantus at the top of my screen than all the single ladies looking for love that I used to see. Plus, they sometime have useful information to add to discussions.

In the past Mantus has offered some very good deals to forum members, have been responsive when questioned about their anchors and I, for one, don't think that they deserve the responses in this thread.

They did maybe 1 to 2 years ago. They've also had some great discount sales in the past one of which which also coincided with their anchor giveaway. Who would have thought. :-)

Haven't seen any discounts lately so I guess they're selling well.

As commented already the company is very responsive and when they upgraded the material in their anchor shank to the ASTM 514 specification I got the new version for only the cost of shipping.

Re: Mantus anchor raffle

Don't feel bad. People constantly troll the **** out of the majority of my posts.

I'm in the anchor market. Where are yours made? I'll go look at your site now. I am also considering mantus. Made in nz. Rocna is double the price but made in china.

Ease up, guys...


Mantus is one of the advertisers that help support this site.. and as such they are permitted to advertise their product.

I bought one last fall, got a good deal via the Sailnet Store and Mantus themselves. As it turns out, after a month in the rain on my foredeck there was some rust on the roll bar - part of the galvanizing did not take. I sent pics and a note on a Sunday afternoon, Greg replied within an hour, and a new bar was shipped the next morning.

Clearly they stand behind their product. They're one of the good guys.
