The stockless anchor was developed to avoid the difficult and labour-intensive task of stowing Admiralty-pattern anchors.
Stockless anchors can be hauled right up into the hawse-pipe with the flukes close against the ship's side. Hall's patent anchor was introduced in 1888 and the improved version in 1910.
This example, made in 1963, belonged to the Union Castle Mail Steam Ship Co., as a spare for vessels of the South African Mail Service and the cruise liner Reina del Mar. It serves as a memorial to the Cape Mail Service, operating from 1857 to 1977.   EQS0186
