Archives and Anchors

I was surfing through the Archives, noting some of the regular contributors back nine or ten years ago that we no longer hear from: KR, Phil in Toronto, judi in OKlahoma, Scott, Cri Cri, Lee@98223, Narc, Craig Scheiner....some have died, others live or holiday elsewhere, or have just "moved on". Quien sabe?

One interesting thread back in March/09 dealt with Sir Francis Drake, and Admiral George Anson, complete with an old photo (from the 70's?) of what local legend claimed was an anchor from one of Anson's ships. It was huge, displayed in front of a Las Gatas restaurant.

There was an interesting follow-up post:

"Please don't quote me on this, but I believe that this anchor is what now lies at the base of the artificial reef (beach side, not ocean side) at las gatas. It's pretty easy to spot down there when you're snorkeling around." 

Can any of you snorkelers comment? Have you seen the anchor?
