UR A, para. A1.4.2 provides that two of the three required bower anchors must be connected to their cables and positioned on board ready for use while the third anchor is intended as a spare anchor, installation on board not being compulsorily required. Each Classification Society is free to permit other arrangements at its discretion or not to require the spare anchor as a condition of classification.
