It would seem intuitively that having the fluke slotted so it could slide over the shank (which would be T shaped at the end) and THEN be bolted would make it stronger. As it is, it appears the tensile loading on the shank/fluke bolts is the only thing holding it together.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
