"Boo hoo, someone doesn't like my favorite anchor." Likely Weeping Q quote.... The comments on the Epsilon, where a serious review is over due, appear to have been made without actually using one.
Makes you weep if this was meant to actually be useful and help owners to make a decision
Q fancies himself as something of an anchor expert, you have to wonder if he is jealous."Boo hoo, someone doesn't like my favorite anchor." Likely Weeping Q quote.
Give it a rest buddy, did you subscribe to his reviews? Pitch in some cash? Yeah, didn't think so. Plenty of seabed out there for you to build a rig and test anchors.

Steve is developing testing protocols and doing groundbreaking work. All Q has is " Americans can be very litigious."
No satisfaction at all. Its sad. Anyone willing to stick their neck out testing anchors needs all the support they can get as they offer a new slant. Interestingly a group of major beneficiaries to Steve's work has been anchor makers, some, unknown to the greater buying public (or those who do not commonly frequent forum discussion on anchors). I'm thinking of Viking, Anchor Right and their Excel, but there are others. Steve brought anchor testing to a greater audience - and brought some unknown anchors to the fore.I've contributed cash. Have you shared anything beyond your threatening "litigious" warning?
Does his post # 77 give you satisfaction?
Beth and I had several suppliers threaten us with lawsuits - I told them to pound sand, take us to court if they wanted to but they would lose and then pay our costs. They all 100% folded.Have you shared anything beyond your threatening "litigious" warning?
Yup, I've been threatened for publishing unpopular test results as well. Make sure your procedures are documented, keep fact separate from opinion, and have no conflict of interest. No problem. Then it is just data.Beth and I had several suppliers threaten us with lawsuits - I told them to pound sand, take us to court if they wanted to but they would lose and then pay our costs.

I did have the luxury of being trained in a highly litigious business as my first job out of business school, and also had the resources to go to court as necessary. The vast majority of marine suppliers just want to threaten and don't want to spend the necessary resources to follow thru.
Someone unwilling to expand on his ideas - hardly useful.Yes.
Along the distant inhospitable shores we visited we did not see many Bruce anchors at all. Seems like you started with a conclusion and made up evidence to support it.Maybe consider - why do you damn Bruce yet others still praise the idea. It is still found on bow rollers of yachts that cruise distant inhospitable shores.
