News from the vesseltracker web site on 3 August 2010:
"After reaching the port of Sitka on July 29, 2010, the "Amsterdam" received back its anchor lost on May 20 in Sitka, after the anchor-braking mechanism had broken and 60 tons of anchor and chain had dropped 200 feet to the sea floor. Holland America, valuing the anchor and chain at up to a half-million dollars, decided to try for a recovery. Last week the chain was hoisted onto a crane-equipped barge and then re-connected to the ship."
