Description

Captain Rodger's anchor marked a great departure from the form of previous anchors. The arms, de, df were formed in one piece, and were pivoted at the crown d on a bolt passing through the forked shank ab. The points or pees e, f, to the palms g' were blunt. This anchor had an excellent reputation amongst nautical men of that period, and by the committee on anchors, appointed by the [British] admiralty in 1852, it was placed second only to the anchor of Trotman.
