I stopped at the KVK today just in time to watch an anchor move.  Crew on the “bent-leg” barge caught the hook in the eye of the anchor cable, and

then Sea Bear powered away, the barge submerging in the process.

The anchor got winched up and

the barge crew took the applause as the tug moved them

away to the next phase, which looked

a bit like jousting or clam raking with long handled tools.

The eye was caught and the yellow hook dropped

from the sky;  once attached, the anchor got

hauled up, and Florida could move to the next dredge sector.
