Plastic Anchors?

I'm sure I've seen somewhere a folding grapnel that's possibly plastic dipped/coated or something.

Anyone got a link?

Were you thinking of something like this: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/NEW-ANCHOR-FOR...ht_2739wt_1006 but presumably a bit bigger for the tender?

I was trying to save you a few squid on shipping. If the plastic coating is anything like the type used on diving weights, it won't take much abuse...
