OK so he's obnoxious but even so these threads are way over the top. Its a trucking anchor ffs. Sure we need 'em but good god almighty can we try and keep things in perspective.

Not as if Craig and his girlfriend are trying to sail around for 1000 days in a plasticised cement schooner ..
Tis quite entertaining though, I love the serious forum drama! Very angsty stuff...

Btw, after carefully reading these anchor threads, I have decided to go with a 150# mushroom as my main ground tackle. Ought to look quite snazzy hanging off the bow as well.. I have to be different..

Chris,
Good to see you have a good anchor. This guy had no engine and anchor did not hold him off the shore: http://www.sailnet.com/photogallery/.../2/limit/views
