For sale: Anchor sunk off Caribbean beach

An enterprising eBay user has listed a sunken anchor for sale – all you have to do is dive 15ft into the Caribbean and salvage it

We’ve come across many boat owners who have a canny eye for saving a few quid, but even the stingiest of nautical bargain hunters may think twice before bidding on this particular lot.

An eBay user has listed a 90kg anchor for sale through the online auction site with just one catch – it is sunk beneath 15ft of water in the Caribbean and you have to go and get it.

The seller estimates that the anchor cost around $1,000 (£685) when new and could fetch as much as $400 if it is cleaned up.

The auction is for the GPS co-ordinates of the anchor and despite this potential bounty the bidding has not exactly taken off, with the highest bid at the time of writing being just 99 cents.

However, the auction runs until 19:33 on Wednesday May 4, so there is still plenty of time to stake your claim to this sunken treasure.
