Hi One Eye,
 
Great to hear from you, I have spent many hours reading items on the forum. Like you relatively new (feb this year) I am classed as cabin boy but would like to be a full member but not sure how to go about it. By boat is a motor / sailer with a top speed of 7 knots. I am based at Bucklers Hard and would love to know of any cod marks within a few miles of Lepe. Most of my fishing is between Lepe and Newtown creek which involves 2 hours plus steaming time. Any info greatly appreciated.

Hi all. WOW, so many questions, first may I say that the Alderney system appeared many years after mine which is explained on another forum page, there were also other companies who tried marketing the system, all making slight modifications to the ring. They all failed in their marketing attempts as the whole system was too easy to replicate, I knew this from the start after appearing at Beaulieu Boat Jumble with a hundred ready made units crafted by Spencer Rigging at Cowes. I wasn't going to waste the money on any Patents. The word quickly spread around the boat jumble and before long I had hundreds visiting my stall where I had a working model to show people how it worked. But as I said before it was too easy to copy.
Dave, I put an article on the forum about fishing the Brambles Bank for Cod during the winter but I will search my old records and find you a good mark closer to home, leave it with me for a few days.
Eric..

Hello Eric, yes a very warm welcome to the forum, I like to fish the Bambles but the other side in the gully by Bourne Gap, its used to be good for good sized Thornbacks and Bass, but I will be looking at the mark you have explained on here with eagerness. I too have invented a few things in the past, my favourite is a self tripping anchor, Snowy on here has seen it, and it works perfectly but without huge sums on money behind you to protect it, it was basically a non starter. A shame. I run a Wilson Flyer 24 out of Ashlett Creek just inside the Esso Marine terminal. Anyway, enough said, I will be looking out for you in the Solent and as you can see, my call sign and other details are listed at the bottom of this post. Speak soon again I hope Eric, bye for now. 
Cheers For Now, Woody ;-)

Thank you Mark, if you ever get chance to come to the Island just let me know and I will arrange a trip either in the boat or shore. the beauty being there is always a LEE whichever direction the wind is blowing.

OneEye, I have seen it, played with it and it works. It is not something you can 'copy' though as it is a completely new concept and it is brand new anchor design that self trips not anything you attach to it

It wa\s the production cost that killed the idea, even to develop Steve's prototype to the next stage was going to cost a couple of hundred.

I did see an anchor once with a groove  cut out down the middle of the shaft where the shackle is attached and can slide up and down, presumably to trip the anchor and bring it up backwards.

I think they are still in production.
 
Steves idea incorporated a spring in the shaft of the Anchor. It could be pretensioned to trip and release the blades so they would reverse to lift out of the obstruction.
