New Bower Anchors for Surprise

I have almost finished the two large Bower anchors for Surprise. Tomorrow I hope to finish the two smaller ones then bead blast the aluminum and paint them.

I used an 8 X 8 X 1/4 inch aluminum plate from McMaster-Carr number 9246K11 for these two larger anchors.

I have a 4 X 36 X 3/16 inch plate number 8975K422 for the two smaller anchors. That appears to be the smallest 3/16 size they sell.

The flukes are made from an old stop sign that was run over some years ago and I picked it up for just such a need as this.

The stocks were cut from a piece of ash I had stored for about 10 years and it was almost as tough as the aluminum to cut and shape.
