Default What have you found attached to the anchor chain?

Sometimes you pick up interesting things as you retreive your anchor...

We have had the normal surprises when recovering the anchor, old nets, logs, tyres, tonnes of plastic and huge lumps of old rope. Found a carpet in Albania, a burnt sail in Dubrovnik and a huge Manta Ray in Australia.
Met a couple who were new(1 week) to full time sailing, who had just found a body in a bag stuck on their anchor. They were pretty upset and asked if it was normal!!
