What is one of the most famous ship anchors in the Philippe Cousteau Anchor Museum in Asturias Spain?
One of the most famous ship anchors in the Philippe Cousteau Anchor Museum [Museo de Anclas Philippe Cousteau] in Asturias, Spain, is from 'Nuestra Señora de Atocha'. The 'Atocha' was loaded with New World treasures [copper, emeralds, gold, silver, tobacco, etc.] for its return trip to Spain. On September 6, 1622 a hurricane drove the ship onto the coral reefs near Dry Tortugas about 35 miles [56 kilometers] west of Key West. The hull was badly damaged, and the ship quickly sank. Everyone onboard drowned except for three sailors and two slaves. The 'Atocha' lay lost for 363 years until American treasure hunter Mel Fisher [August 21, 1922-December 19, 1998] and his son Kane located the ship after searching for 16.5 years.
The anchor prevents a ship from drifting away due to the water currents or tide. A popular misconception is that the anchor itself acts as the main weight to "secure" the ship… in its position. On an anchoring run, the ship would lay the anchor together with a length of its iron cables on the seabed. The length to be released would depend on factors such as the depth of the water etc. So it is not the weight of the anchor, but the weight of the huge iron cables connected to the anchor that "secures" the ship. The anchor's weight does play a role, but it is mainly used to grip or hook the iron cables to the seabed. A ship properly anchored would be held to a circular area, the radius defined by the length of the cable released. Also, occasionally, with strong currents, the ship could "drag anchor."
An anchor is a heavy object from a ship attached to along length ofchain to hold the ship in one place.
an anchor on a boat keeps the boat from drifting. An anchor on a tv news program is the one who keeps everything running smoothly and has the most air time dealing with the to…p headlines of today. Anchors are the people that make viewers tune inti a particular channel for the news another word for an anchor on the news is the host of the show or the emcee (master of ceremonies)
it holds the boat (ect.) in one place
A ship is held in position by the weight of the chain laying on the bottom. The anchor is used to grab on the bottom when laying anchor. After the anchor is down, several leng…ths of chain is paid out. The weight of the chain is what holds the ship. The circumstances determine how much chain is needed and which type of anchor to use. Therefore they don't BOTH need to be very long.

the force of attraction b/w two ships is more than the frictional force b/w ship and the water.If we don't anchor the ship it will collide with other ship with a force equal t…o the force Gm 1 m 2 /d 2.As a result of collision both ships will destroy due to a very high force of attrection.

In Airplanes and Aircraft
An anchor is located on the ship so that when the ship wants to dock it can stay in a certain place. The anchor is heavy enough to stop the ship from moving. If there are no a…nchors then ant ship will easily drift away. . -----. depends on the type of ship. Most vessels have an anchor at the bow, this allows the vessel to face the oncoming waves when at anchor. Some vessels also have a stern anchor for use in some mooring situations where the vessel swinging would be a problem. Some working vessels may have multiple anchors and positioning systems to keep them in one spot for drilling, use of ROV's, diving apparatus, etc. . Most anchors depend on flukes, "arms of the anchor" digging into the bottom as well as dead weight to keep the vessel from moving...
In Acts chapter 27:29 the ship mentioned had four anchors.
