Inscription.  

In the fall of 1967, while L.A. Otter and son, Alvin, were shrimping in their new boat, the Lydia Gail, in Trinity Bay near Lonesome Reef, an anchor became entangled in their net. They retrieved the anchor, and it was sandblasted and painted by Brown & Root Shipyard at Oak Island (Double Bayou?). After Charlie Ezer built a cement foundation for the anchor, it was presented to Chambers County where it remains on display in Fort Anahuac Park.
