It was all over the news a while ago, they hit a submarine that was testing a new silent propulsion engine. Due to the silent drive, the ship didn't pick it up on the sonar before letting the anchor go, thus hitting the submarine. The submarine imploded on impact, and created a downwards draw due to an huge amount of rocks shifting on the ocean floor. The rocks and debris from the submarine attached around the anchor because of the huge amount of water pressure around it, creating a solid metal ball just dragging the entire anchor down with it. By now you must be wondering if there is the slightest truth to any of this, and i assure, there isn't. :P

the clutch controlling anchor payout was worn, and failed......very very expensive!

The anchor is lowered to the bottom and chain is let out, the brake holds while flukes are set. Once you are holding, chain is let out. It is the weight of the chain that holds a ship in position. The chain link in this may have gotten stuck in the lip of the chain pipe. The brake men released too much brake to get the chain moving. When it finally broke free there was not enough friction and once the momentum built there was no stopping the chain. That is my theory based on other similar anchor disasters.

Good thing it broke off because I doubt they would have been able to pull it back up again.

#10 Why is that?

#1 I think everything went wrong here :D


the brakes failed, those use to hold back the wheel from releasing the chaine like this. It was stuck a few seconds so the release was fully opened, that was a bad idea. It was not possible to hold this kind of force back.

#8 Your theory? Here is the video from where you copy/pasted your "theory" from the first comment of Garry Hall who was giving the orders on a Navy ship that lost its own anchor.....

#11 the machine would have been severely damaged from all that force and wouldn't have been able to lift it again.

The ship was a VLCC (very large crude carrier), when the anchor is dropped all the way must be off the ship or the anchor chain forces are huge. to counter this the windlass must be in gear and let out by controlling the winch. the brake should never ever be used to contol rate of drop or this is the result. So two reasons - too much way on ship and incorrect windlass operation.

#23 alright, i must admit i love the actual stats more than the way it is now. I think you've mention before that you've considered showing both numbers? Im all for it if so. And yea, i feel a lot of people here are very sensitive and serious at times, so once in a while i have to misbehave and do some pranks or silly comments :P
