    I felt a bit puzzled with this one since everything seems ok. But on closer inspection I think the stock and the arms of this fisherman’s anchor should be perpendicular.

    The top bar should be perpendicular to the flukes at the bottom, not parallel with them. Otherwise the anchor would be very difficult to dislodge from the seabed.

    Also, it’s aweigh, not away. “Anchors aweigh!” is the command to raise–“weigh”–the anchor and set sail.

    The horizontal bar must be perpendicular to the plane of the anchor “hooks”

    unless if this is not an anchor ;p

    1. The “tooth” on the far side of the picture is welded to the outer edge of the bent cross-piece. The “tooth” is always (I think) welded to the inner edge, as shown on the near side of the picture.

    2. Isn’t the loop at the top of the anchor usually cast into the anchor as one piece, not bolted on as shown here?

    The stock is drawn in the wrong direction. It should be perpendicular to the plane of the rest of the anchor.

    If the colour is anything to go by, then the anchor is made of wood, which means it’s going to float.

    the cross should be twisted 180 degrees and not in line with the arrows…

    the horseshoelike handle at the end should be fixed and not free to move !!

    Shouldn’t the top arms and the bottom arms be perpendicular to each other, not parallel?

    The horizontal bar on the top of the anchor should be smaller in length compared to the bottom.

    direction of Anchor end and the stick has to be cross not in the same direction

    I was looking for anchors images to see if the ring on the top of the anchor is attached that way, but i found out that this kind of anchor, called fisherman or kedge, has its arm (the one with the little spheres on the side)on the vertical, so one of the sides can penetrate the seabed.
    i cheated it form here:
