“To keep the ship in the attitude of safety, there is no effort and no art equal to the anchor”
– Elon Foster, 1877.
A ship without an anchor is held at the whim of the sea, for without an anchor a ship cannot safely moor in a sheltered cove to wait out a storm nor can it land at dock, as the currents and winds would eventually take it away.
As a vital part of any seafaring vessel, the anchor is crucial for the safety of the ship and crew. Adopt the anchor from the Nonsuch today to ensure she stays firmly moored at The Manitoba Museum.
