A word a week photograph challenge: hole

3 Comments

Knowing that maritime history is replete with special terms I thought that the hole an anchor chain comes out of must have a particular name – and it turns out there is.  This is the hawse of the Hikitia. The Hikitia is a working self-propelled floating steam crane in Wellington. She is thought to be the only working steam crane of her type in the world.
