Title: Marine anchor

Abstract: A marine anchor having a shank connectible to an anchor rode at one end and having a double ploughshare fluke rigidly mounted at the other end thereof is described. The fluke consists of two symmetrically mounted part-cylindrical blades disposed on each side of a central ridge in the medial plane of the shank and extending from a forward apex to divergent trailing ends. A ballast weight is mounted under the convex surfaces of the blades and contained within the tangential plane to the convex surfaces. Each blade is also provided with a fin along the outer edge thereof, perpendicular to the central edge and located aft of the junction of the shank and the fluke.
