or to misquote from 'Oliver'

In this life, one thing counts
On the Sea, large amounts
I'm afraid these don't grow on trees,
You've got to pick-an anchor or two.

Then a few days later Albatross have problems with their own anchor.

Does this tale have you anchored to your seats waiting for the next exciting episode?   ;D

Perhaps that happened because he was weary.

TPTB have decided losing the anchors was the fault of the anchor chain which they have now dragged along the dock for a good annealing.  ::)

Naughty chain.  ;D
It was mentioned previously that the broke chain looked crystalline (which is not good).
