Where Credit Is Due: April 2014

Mantus Anchors

All Mantus anchors sold after Dec. 8, 2013, have new, stronger shanks. According to Greg Knutsen of Mantus, owners of older models with mild steel shanks can get the new shank free—paying only the shipping costs—just as reader Ian Marshall did.


In November 2013, I bought a 65-pound Mantus Anchor. Living in Maine, I had not yet had the pleasure of using it but was disturbed by your recent report (PS, February 2014) regarding their shank strength. I contacted Mantus about getting a replacement shank.

I want to thank Greg Knutsen and Mantus Anchors (www.mantusanchors.com) for a very quick delivery of my new and stronger shank for my anchor. Mantus obviously values its customers and is trying very hard to keep them satisfied. They have certainly pleased me.
