SHIP HANDLING IN RESTRICTED WATERS — ANCHORING
|D O W N L O A D|
Recently, several quite serious accidents that have resulted in losses of anchors together with entire length of anchoring cables, have taken place while the vessels were attempting to make anchoring. In addition to that, the number of accidents involving vessels lying at anchor has also been noticed to increase.
Most of the subject accidents involved drifting, as well as collision and standing caused by the dragging anchor. The intention of the team of authors who made the present video training film was to prepare a practical material that would be used when studying how to prevent drifting due to dragging anchor while the vessel is lying at anchor and also how to prevent the loss of anchor and it's cable while attempting to anchor.
This video film will be very useful for the ship navigator regardless of their professional seagoing experience, because it not only gives the general theoretical knowledge of the subject but also provides trainees with some practical tips they may benefit of one day.
We would for sure recommend all ship navigators to have a close look and spend some time watching this video file and use the information when conducting their duties during the anchoring operations. The other three parts of this training set address the in-harbor ship handling, bank effects and interaction between two vessels, and ship squat and shallow water effects - all of them are available at our site.
