Given have that 5/16 is only 1/6 bigger than 1/4, the 5/16 Hook will have a little more slop in it but still will serve you right.... Try it if it doesn't work we will refund you.....

Shame, I'm in the market for a hook.

Actually on second thoughts I don't think moderators should be eligible.

Naaah. Aussie's and Maderator's are people too. Congrats TDW!
Perhaps Mantus needs a few contacts down under to set up distribution there.

Now if the rest of us who are still sitting in the dark could have a peek at the accepted correct answer ...

Riddle Answer
Turn two of the light switches on. After a couple of minutes turn one of them off, then enter the room. One light will be on, two will be off but one of the two will be warm to the touch.

Cheers

Nah ... it feels too much like "cash for comment". Seems to me that Zephyr was the second to get it right so I'm passing to him. (her ? them ?)

I do stress however that if first prize had been a Hallberg Rassey 46 then I'd have trampled all over my moral scruples.

That is funny. Good to see that some folks have scruples, even down under!

Les, as you can imagine there are many opinions on anchors choice and on this forum there are pages of discussion on the topic. My personal opinion is that newer generation anchors: Spade, Manson Supreme, Rocna, Mantus, Ultra offer a more reliable set than the competition. In really soft mud I think a Fortress or a big Dan forth actually are more efficient. What we claim is the most reliable set, especially in hard to penetrate bottoms. We concentrated on this feature bc in an emergency you don't have time to nurse an anchor or try to find a place where it will grab, another feature of the Mantus is that it breaks down for easy storage. I am sure other members of the Sailnet community would love to share their advice..... feel free to call me and/or private message me with questions any time.....
PS sorry about the accident, glad the boat is OK

Stay tuned we will play again but I have to warn you questions will get harder until the finale.....
Of course Andrew (TDW) won. It is absolutely no fair since that questio n purtains what he does for a living. Andrew is a world renown and highly esteemed expert in lighting. Seriously, Goodonya Andrew.

Greg: Are you in Annapolis for the shows?
