Can any kind person on this forum possibly explain to me how to rig an anchor to a davit? No two pics I have seen look the same and it is hard to figure out how it is done. Thank you in advance!  :  )

A few photos from my archive concerning anchors, catheads and davits .

I think that they are self explanatory.

Are you looking for an anchor rigged to a cathead or to an anchor davit.  Also, what type of ship and what era are you interested in?
