5/5 - LOCALS

Pretty much talking to "locals" here.

I have been getting "ripped".....And I kinda knew it all along. But what could I do?

I use this anchor and it really works for me as a "all around" St. Johns River anchor.

NO, I don't throw it in the rocks at the Jetties and just forget about it. I have a cement block and a re-bar anchor for all that!

But for daily use I get by just fine using a REEF & ROCK Grapnel anchor.




Instead of getting ripped here in Jax, like many other things at local stores. Now, I'm buying my 18# Grapnel anchors from a EBAY STORE.......FREE SHIPPING at 1/2 PRICE!!!!!!!

And now I'm passing it on to you.  Here's the Ebay store link:


OFF EBAY....I find that it's even cheaper!!!  (NO FREE SHIPPING, which we all know it's not really free) Although on Ebay you have a lot of buyer protection always use PayPal.

Gulf coast complainers. haha. It would be great just to drop them at the river here in Bizarro world and see them try fruitlessly try to anchor.
And, hey, never got to see any more vid of the anchor puller in action. How is it doing? Taking good care of ya?

Steph,

the anchor puller just didn't work, had loads of trouble with it. Took it off and sent it back.

be aware if you order form BoatStoreUSA and you do not talk to them first to verify the product, you will have to pay the return shipping and a 20 to 50 Percent restocking fee, their photos do not match and they do not consider it their responsibility. they have a customer in always wrong attitude.
BUYER BEWARE

Ebay & Paypal gives me plenty of protection and getting the anchor at the right price delivered via FedEx was outstanding!
