Anchor on Napier Beach

Wondering along the waterfront of Napier early one summer evening I found this huge anchor. It was nearly as tall as me (over 6 foot). It was from a former Oceanographic Research Vessel used by the Royal New Zealand Navy. Back in 1999 it was presented to the City of Napier after 27 years of use. After close inspection, my guess is they must have painted it white when they installed it here as a sculpture.
