Bluey is correct if you Google Titanic Anchor there is a photo there without the Brakeman.

Apparently this is the chain getting forged for the anchor???

No way of knowing if any of this is true or not

From Facelessbook

Forge workers beside part of the Titanic's anchor chain.

Geez, you'd need a big dog and long cheater bar for that chain. Some more length might be handy, too.

Hi,

how would those guys be feeling when the Titanic went down. All those months possibly years hard at work creating a chain that never got used!

Some more length is always handy.

I don't know Gryphon, The chain is on the bottom of the sea which is where it's supposed to be when working. As are the anchors.

Would they have welded the cross piece in the middle of the link of heated it and hammered it into one piece?

Interesting the link lengths change from 53/4" to 61/4" so they aren't all that accurate.

A dumb question from dumbo no nautical type

Would anchors even het used on this type of boat or for that matter most commercial ships today
I think they just go from pier to pier and are roped onto the big doohikies that look like half a knuckle bone sticking up on the jetty

Think that big doohicky that looks like a knucklebone is called a bollard.

Imagine the size of an anchor for a half million ton supertanker?
