The two largest anchors in a ship. They were usually, but by no means always, carried permanently attached to their cables, one on either bow with the cables running through the hawseholes so that the anchors were always ready for letting go in an emergency. They were originally known as best bower and small bower, but are now just known as the starboard and port bower.
