In 1908, a British ship sailed out of Blacks Harbour and just around Blissville Lighthouse got caught on a ledge and eventually sunk. The ship had two anchors weighing 3800 lbs. each. One was retrieved from the deep a few months ago by a local professional diver.
We just happened to be there fishing as the second anchor was lifted from the lower wharf up onto a waiting trailer bed. (Blacks Harbour) Both anchors will be restored. The diver laughed as he stated he is going to sit one of them on his lawn. And the other anchor ?? WHO KNOWS ?? It was an awesome sight to watch.... Enjoy this short video.
