DUKW Anchor - help needed

Post by SURPDLR » Wed Jul 22, 2009 2:30 pm

Anybody have pictures of a correct DUKW anchor? I did a search here, but found only broken links and no pictures....

Somebody has turned me onto a Danforth MKII anchor. It has the following markings on it:

on one side is:
R. S. Danforth Berkeley, CAL Mark II 120 75

on the other side:
2/95 LBS

I’m wondering if it is a MKII 75lb (guy says it weighs close to 80lbs) made in Feb 1995. There is no patent number on it.

I finally got some pictures:

Here is a few pictures of original DUKW anchors. Some of the markings match but it seems mine have a lot more markings on them. If you can post a picture of the anchor you are looking at I am sure someone can ID it. Also I may have a spare original DUKW anchor I might sell.
