Homer Roberson Sr. operates a winch to load a crusty anchor onto a truck with the help of Truman Davis. Roberson, owner of the salvage ship Treasure Hunter, was looking for a sunken fishing boat Wednesday, Sept. 9, 1992 when he hooked these two anchors at the mouth of the marina at the University of Texas Marine Science Institute. The anchor in the pickup was estimated to be fairly new. The older one in mid-air Roberson guessed to be pre-World War I. This photo originally appeared in the Sept. 17, 1992 edition of the South Jetty.
