Re: anchors!


Hi Darkrose and Tom

Now this one could prove interesting, I agree with Tom as it is reported that they would weigh 31ton together, But some reports have two anchors at 7tone and one at 10 ton as correctly stated by Darkangel. One report has one of the Anchors a lot higher than this.

The cables though had a breaking strain of 180 ton.

Regards
Graham
