  1. WHAT ANCHOR HOLDS THIS MOORING IN PLACE?

    1. Hello!

      Thanks for your comment!

      Next Monday there will be a blog post with an animation that will explain how the mooring is deployed and what the anchor is made from!

      It’s usually old railway wheels that are bolted together.

      Cheers
