Thanks Alain... but is the book biased in what anchors are preferred or is it a general purpose guide to anchoring? Given that you are the designer and manufacturer of a specific anchor, it is a realistic question to ask.

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.

Thanks for your clever question.. I don't believe the book is biased at all, as my co-authors and the editor, would never allow me to do that.. and next point, if I will always remain the designer of several specific anchors, wich could means that I have some knowledge on the subject.. But, I have sold the Spade company and I don't have anymore commercial, marketing or financial interest with any anchor manufacturer..
