1896: A New Anchor Invented

A new sea anchor has been invented by Michael McCarthy, of Middletown, Conn. The anchor is filled with oil in such a way that the oil is diffused over the waves as the anchor is tossed up and down, and so a comparative calm is created in which the vessel may ride out a storm in safety.

From The Wyandott Herald (Wyandott, Kansas), March 12, 1896.
