Re: Anchor and Rode

the shipping cost is probably too high to make it worth your while but thank you anyway.

Re: Anchor and Rode

According to this local fisherman, they are moving from Northills to Bruce/claw-type anchors for securing their nets in the last commercial fishery of SF Bay.

Mark the anchors in your picture are not true north hill seaplane anchors . The real ones the cross bar is removable for stowage. Those ones will work just as good however stowage on a small sailboat is a prime concern.

Re: Anchor and Rode

A bit of history here....

The original Northills were made by the Northrup Aircraft factory for the PBY seaplanes.

They were made out stainless steel sheet metal and could be dis-assemble for storage in the nose of the aircraft. They were made out of stainless so that they would not effect the aircraft's steering compass.

Each of the original Northills had a serial number on it as each anchor was specific to a particular aircraft.

And now you know
