A Trotman’s anchor circa 1860The British Admiralty searched for anchor patterns with greater holding power than the traditional Admiralty Pattern (AP) Anchor. After the Great Exhibition of 1851 a Committee of 1852 on Anchors was created and a committee was appointed by the Admiralty in the succeeding year to consider and report upon the qualifications of the various kinds.

The peculiarity of the anchor is that the anchor arms pivot about this bolt, so that when it takes hold the upper fluke is brought in contact with the shank, thus reducing the height above ground, and rendering it almost impossible for the cable to get entangled round it, or, in other words, for the anchor to become fouled. The Trotman’s anchor, which obtained the highest place in the committee’s estimation, was an improved Porter’s.
