I grew up in the area, and remember seeing one of the links, and parts of
the other anti-ship obstacles excavated from the site when I was very young
(Washington's HQ museum, I think). As I remember the link, it was an oval
(actually more a rectangle with rounded ends) about 4' long, and 1 1/2'-2'
wide, constructed of 4"-6" square stock.
At one time, I knew all the facts and figures on length, etc. What I do
still remember is that it seems a pretty impressive project considering the
time and place.
