Newly discovered anchors include these two at the Small Boat Club at Garden Island: –

Again, this anchor can only be seen by Royal South Australian Yacht Squadron members and their guests during the week, but the club rooms are open to the public for meals on weekends.

The owner of the anchor plans to restore it whilst it is still laying down. He then plans to use a forklift to put it back against the post there.

This anchor at the Austbuilt Museum has been undergoing a bit of restoration. The anchor has been coated with fish oil in the hope of preserving it: –

Meanwhile, we have been doing some fundraising to raise money to put towards printing some more trail guides.
