The anchors of The Titanic

The Titanic that attention of the world was drawn left the port of Southernpton on April 10, 1912. She had the bottom of the double hull structure, and it was epoch-making structure as those days. Her hull was partitioned by the room of 16. Even if seawater was flooded in 1 room, the seawater was thought never to get into other rooms, and anyone believed her the ship which never sank. But, she collided after 5 days from leaving unfortunately with the iceberg. Then, it sank in the southern sea of Newfoundland of the north Atlantic Ocean. The anchors which the latest ship was equipped with was 3set, and that total weight was 31 tons. They were carried by carriage made specially to the shipyard.
