Arrow Rocna photo hunt: a thank you note

Hi all,

Thanks to those to date who have responded to our request for photos. We've received a good number of responses, and our little collection is now starting to look like something deserving of the name.

I'm sure the effort made to take and send photos, particularly by those who did it specially, will be greatly appreciated not only by ourselves, but by those other boaters for whom it's intended.
www.rocna.com/kb

Thanks again to the contributors so far.

Craig,

At sailnet, we always apprecaite your input - though we may not always agree. Just curiously, given the nature of your product and influence on this board, wouldn't it be beneficial for you to periodically take out an ad or two to help support a platform you use so much? I know it would be appreciated to help keep the lights on here.

Craig- I have to agree with CD- (holy crap, did I just say that?) You are effectivly using Sailnet as a marketing tool both to discuss your product, and now to collect marketing data and images. It would only seem the right thing to do to help support the platform that has helped you/your company by taking out the occational ad.

Now about that anchor....

An ad's a great idea! Especially now that ad's are laced through all of the threads. Folks would see the picture of that anchor everywhere.

Craig...once again you use this forum to try to promote your anchors and link to your site in violation of our terms.
You may NOT discuss your anchors EXCEPT in response to a members question. Once again I say to you...TAKE OUT AN AD!

Your post has been edited accordingly.

In essense, support that which supports you. I have absolutely no doubt (and nor do you or Rocna) that our board has alread sold you countless anchors - either directly or indirectly. Please note - I do NOT (NOT) get paid in any way by Sailnet. I do all of this for free, as does Cam and Jeff. We give back for free - would be nice if you helped support too.

I cannot imagine Rocna not standing behind a revenue source. Thank you for your support. If you do not know where to go to take out an ad, please let me know and I will personally help direct you.

- CD

PS Taking out an ad does not mean free roaming on the board. That would not change, but I surely would not object to you linking your ad (at sailnet) to your post. I doubt others would either.

Craig-

Considering how you're basically in every anchor-related thread... and you are probably pointing people to some of the discussions about anchors that have been held on this forum, many of which have Maine Sail, myself and several other Rocna owners advocating your product, I think it would make sense for your company to take an ad out regarding your product.

Given the very aggressive stance you have regarding your product, and the premium that you charge for your anchor, taking out a few ads is the least you can do.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Ditto to you and everyone above. That's what I am saying. Why don't you support us as we support you??
