Great point.

Maybe their parents inherited the means from their parents, or maybe the young folks in that fun video earned the means themselves. Maybe it's a group one-week rental they all saved...

On of my marina neighbors has a Mantus and loves it. I can't use an anchor with a roll bar on my pulpit and I have heard great things about the Rocna Vulcan, so I plan to get one of those.

Its obviously man-made and has boats in it already. It's a safe bet that it's navigable, otherwise those boats would not be there. Also, people don't typically go to all the trouble of digging a...
