Inscription.

This Anchor was donated to Freinds [sic - Friends] of the Yarmouth Light Society, by Bay Ferries. The fluke was broken off, when it got caught in [the] rocks on bottom, while at anchor just off the lighthouse. This anchor came off the M.V. Bluenose, which sailed between Bar Harbour and Yarmouth. Its weight is 5.5 tons. The "Cat" replaced the "Bluenose" in 1998.
