Battleship USS IOWA has some pretty big anchors - 30,000 lb anchors to be exact. And it takes hefty chains to support those anchors... Chains with links that weigh over 120 lbs. Yes, ONE LINK weighs over 120 lbs. That's the size of some humans!

The links are so impressively giant, we decided to have some more fun with our GoPro. Come along for the ride!
