Anchors, by N E Upham
Anchors, Shire Album 110
by N E Upham
This booklet relates the evolution of anchors from their primitive origins to the special designs required for huge modern bulk carriers of half a million tons dead weight. Progress has been made largely by trial and error and only since the middle of the twentieth century has there been scientific investigation into the design of high holding power anchors.
