Cast-iron Mooring Anchor

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Mooring anchors are those which are places in harbours, for the convenience of vessels frequenting them. A large buoy is attached to the end of the mooring cable, and the ship is made fast to a ring-bolt fitted on the buoy. Mooring anchors are not limited by considerations of weight, as other anchors are, he only requirements being that they have sufficient holding power, and do not project above the ground, as any projection in the shallow waters in which they are usually placed would render ships liable to injury from grounding on them, and be dangerous to fishing-nets.” — Encyclopedia Britanica, 1893
