Navy Anchor

Kenosha, WI

I am a Marine and I want to learn about the Navy anchor. I had a Marine Corps eagle, globe, & anchor made as a statue, and I want to do the same thing for your Navy anchor, but I need to know what is important.

Please sound off by telling me which details must be just right, which look the best, if it should be vertical, exactly what type of anchor, what color, proportions, about the chain or rope, which way it should wind around the anchor, etc.

I am prepared to reward Sailors with the most useful answers by shipping a free anchor statue when complete.

Thanks Mad Dog. I did already have that and many other images. I need to know what is important for every Sailor. Let me explain what I need to know, with contrast to the Marines. If I made the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor supported with swords, it is very possible that Marines that did not attain the NCO ranks are less interested, so I did not use the swords.

What is universal about the Anchor? Does it need to be verticle? How about the chain? Should the chain be perfectly like in you CPO image, or does that not matter? I need to know what matters.

Thanks for the feedback,
