Well that ends my picture shooting plans for anchors.

But here we have mostly soft bottoms so anchors should be buried deep enough to avoid providing homes for octopus.

Pulling anchor prolly won't do any good for the octopus.

Thanks for the heads up .... wudda never thunk.

That video may just be the ticket to get rid of all anchors and single engine boats.

Can't anchor in coral any more...now the PETA people may try keeping all anchors of the bottom.

Never thought the anchor and single/twin debates would end...especially PETA solving the debate.....
