This anchor is in the entrance to the Tahiti Museum. although it is pretty huge, it is easy to miss it unless you are looking out for it.
The anchor originally belonged to one of Captain James Cook's boats - HMS Adventure, and was lost whilst he was attempting to land in Tahiti during tricky weather conditions in 1773.
It was found and recovered in 1978 as a promotional campaign for another remake of Mutiny on the Bounty. The campaign did not prove fruitful however as the film was a flop!
