y dragging upon the bed. See dredge. 11. (Husbandry.) An implement with hooking tines to haul manure along the surface. A manuredrag. Manure-drag. Drag-an′chor. (Nautical.) A frame of wood, or of spars clothed with sails, attached to a hawser, and thrown overboard to drag in the water and diminish the lee-way of a vessel when drifting, or to keep the head of a ship to the wind when unmanageable by loss of sails or rudder. It was patented under the name of a drag-sheet, by Burnet (English) 1826. It is sometimes made, in an emergency, of spars lashed together to form a triangular or rectangular frame, which is then covered with a sail. When constructed and carried as a part of the ship's equipment, it is made to serve as a raft or drag as may be required; but the peculiarities are generally confined to means for compact stowage and to spilling-lines for their recovery, either by collapse or reversal of position to enable them to be readily drawn in and hauled on boa
