Re: US woman rescued at sea sues phone firm.

many years ago i dove down to retrieve the broken half of a CQR knockoff in the BVI. The weight of the chain held us in same position for about 10 metre drag from where i found plow portion of knockoff CQR. Have used same anchor after re-welding since as secondary anchor without fail but primary on chain is now the "real mckoy" .later
