Re: Riddles with a Prize, by Mantus Anchors

Jeff we decided to go to Annapolis too late and could not get a spot, but we will surely be there in the spring! We still have not committed to the show schedule but will post it on the website as soon as we figure it out.....

Greg,
do you have any distributors in the Annapolis area? I seldom buy something as important as an anchor without putting a hand on it first.

Not that my fingers are good for tensile strength testing or such, it's just a thing..

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.

No unfortunately we don't, but I can guarantee you that if you make a purchase through the Sailnet store and for any reason you don't like what you get or it just does not work for you I will refund you and pay for return shipping (no questions asked)...

Re: Riddles with a Prize, by Mantus Anchors

Ok Guys the new Riddle:

Puzzle:

Velocity of Object 1 is constantly changing, but is always less than velocity of the Object 2. Object 2 velocity also changes constantly, but is always directed at the same angle as velocity of Object 1. Both objects are completely motionless relative to each other.
Be the first to describe a scenario when this happens and win a Mantus Hook.

Two objects on parallel courses. With constantly changing velocity..

An example would be two sattelites whose orbits are 180º apart orbiting the same planet.

You might check but I think that I saw some Mantus anchors at Fawcetts.

Actually, it would be like 2 satellites, one closer to the object being orbited. Since the distance is less, to remain motionless with respect to object 2, object 1 travels more slowly.
