Suggestion, show the good ones first. Lots of us don't know much about anchors much less how they are supposed to go.

but whips and chains excite me

You gotta be stopped in order to drop anchor. Not use it as an underwater grappling hook

I'm going to hazard a guess that the pads began to overheat and could no longer hold the load due to "fade" during let out, plus the increasing mass of the extended chain... I'm not sure all the kinds out there, but couldn't they have one that is controlled hydraulically? Especially using seawater instead of oil... They would just turn a valve to control the speed, the heat would be dissipated in the ocean, instead of brake pads. Use the pads for holding, and maybe a "dog" clutch.

Holy fuck the speed of that chain when it’s falling is so scary

I can understand a rusted out coastal freighter being ill equipped and poorly maintained, but the navy?? Come on uncle SAM. You have sent equipment to the moon and beyond in fairly recent times with few failures. We have had an enormous world class navy for over a 150 years, all are equipped with anchors to this day. So one (tax payer) would assume that dropping a stupendous iron monster to the bottom of the ocean and retrieving it would be child's play by now My guess, the anchor and chain and windlass and the monster electric motor to power the windlass is a ten million dollar proposition for each anchor on an aircraft carrier. And I believe there are four of these anchors on board. Wouldn't we assume, given almost bottomless funding and thousands of able bodiedmen and women to figure stuff out and make it work right, every time

In a way Now I I've come to grips on just how fast the Titanic hit the surface of the sea floor after watching this lol
On the 1 clip I noticed the captain leggin it, now he supposed 2stay with the ship if the ship is going down not do a runner if the anchor gets out of order. Cancel the holidays love !!!!

As a retired merchant sailor, I concur - Anchor Drops carry a high 'pucker factor'. While AB on deck, I always hated when 'things got a little out of hand'. As an OS I had seen a runaway that pulled the padeye, chainplate and part of a rusty bulkhead right out the chain locker. Situational awareness is critical. Control freak that I am, I always insisted on being the brakeman. In my mind I had the superior 'touch'. After matriculating on up to Capt., I wanted the crew to power the anchor down(keeping the wildcat engaged), and only free fall during anchor drill pierside. Everyone needs to know how it's done in case of emergency. On an ocean tug once on the Pacific side of Panama canal, we had lost the power to anchor windlass, so we couldn't raise or lower the anchor. We were to anchor and await a pilot. So we just 'station kept' with mains and thruster to simulate an actual anchorage (for about 3 hours).

...pardon; the Power Controllers were in fwd hold (NOT 'all the controls').
d rodan (2 months ago)
That was a bad trip - we had come thru a bad storm between Honolulu and Panama. We lost INMARSAT, Side Band and two UHFs and were down to one Radar and one UHF. Forward hold flooded and it was an All Hands event getting it pumped out with DC pumps. All the controls for anchor windlass were in that cargo hold and got fried, and we had no Air Handler. In Panama, none of us spoke Spanish and we relied on my H.S. French and Pidgin, but ship chandlers were all closed for a national strike(airports too, which kept crew from jumping ship). Took six weeks to git 'er done.... Ah, the Good Times!!!

Stupid video. Except for the last video of the anchor hitting the tugboat, these were nothing but mechanical failures with no explanation of what happened.

this is probably not the top5 but the only 5! who knew that anchor dropping is a thing, and also a copetition where they get rated. on top of that - awful music that ruins the experience. lousy video.

4 was normal rapid deployment of anchor. Next time ask a sailor, we will happily set you straight.

Gonna be honest here... not trying to be rude, but take this as constructive criticism: your narrating is ass. It's kinda like going to "The Price is Right" and never being told whether you won or not. It kinda leaves those who don't really know what is supposed to be going on here "What's so bad about that? They dropped an anchor, sick dude." So maybe explain a little more. Also, you said pretty much the same thing for every clip... something along these lines "It got out of hand." Or "Something went wrong." Pretty basic stuff. The music gets kind of annoying, especialy because you don't tend to have the volume of each clip weighed out correctly. What I mean by that is when the clip is playing, the music should be a background thing, or even nonexistant during the clip, and maybe even the entire video. Last thing: I understand doing this can be draining, but try to have a bit more enthusiasm? I'd rather read vs listen to a robot tell me that something went wrong with an anchor drop without me knowing what is going on half the time.

I thought anchoring would be the first thing they teach you. Not good, having to learn how to drop those things on the fly. Should have joined the Air-force.

If I'd been there I'd have just run in and grabbed the chain and been like "Bam!" and stopped it. And on that last one I'd have just dived forward and pushed the falling anchor away from the tug boat like "Bam!" not like these weaklings all just stood around or running scared.

Gave up after 4 minutes of my life wasted. Utter shite
