A cathead is a large beam located on either bow of a sailing ship and angled outward at about 45 degrees. The beam supports the ship’s anchor when raising or lowering it and for carrying the anchor on its stock-end when suspended outside the ship’s side. The cathead provides both a sturdy beam to support the massive weight of the anchor, and to hold the metal anchor away from the wooden side of the ship. The projecting end or terminal cap of the beam were often embellished and commonly carved with a feline face that of a cat or lion.
