Fouled Anchor

Fouled Anchor

Not so much a life-threatening accident, more an amusing incident! HMS Richmond entered Portsmouth Harbour on 19th July, 2006 with a fouled anchor.

could quite see that from my holiday inn bedroom yesterday, saw the anchors dropped a little though, there has always been a problem on the 23s that the fwd anchor, if raised too quickly doesn't pivot quick enough and a lot of the class have dents at the upper bow, where the anchor points try to embed themselves
