OK Who wants one of these for their boat?

- mightn't work so well launching in to your typical Atlantic chop but would have serious fun potential in sheltered waters.

Would probably mount effectively on a RIB transom making your RIB into a big RC boat.

That boat had one of these Talons on the back too. Which would allow the the boat to stay in place.

Would look like a prize pillock when it fails to deploy for any reason and your pride and joy merely floats off

Or you forget to retract that Talon device.

That would be kinda like forgetting to pull a standard anchor up, which has been done before

Except you would just go in circles and not get stopped dead in your tracks 20+ meters later. So it would seem leaving the talon down and being a bone head and driving off shouldn't be that big of a deal as you will notice it immediately.
