"shelter from the storm"... dragging anchor, Green Island, B.C.

In 1979 aboard the beach seiner Northern Seas, on our way from Chignik, Alaska to Seattle. The wind was howling at about 70mph and we kept dragging anchor. I had to pull it up, by hand, at least 10 times before the lighthouse keeper came down and we threw him a line attached to the chain and he "anchored" us to that huge rock on the rocky beach of Green Island.
