2018 my arse. These are old as the hills. I'm surprised this vid didn't include Noahs ark anchor drop.
Why am I watching this... What has my life become.

Anchor management issues?
If they were smart they would have had a roll of string tied to the end so they could pull it back up, everybody knows that.

I'm not a mechanical engineer, but if it starts to smoke, then catches fire, it means it is running at maximum efficiency - a job well done.
That's what you get when you buy your anchor at Harbor Freight.

You know why all these are being filmed? Cuz it's been reported to management many times that we need a new brake and they say it costs too much. So they film it incase it lets go there's proof that it's not user error.
I'm fairly sure that first anchor fell through the earth.
this is why I tie off the last link with 3/4" manila rope to a sturdy table leg.

Is it normal to put a tugboat directly under a ship’s anchor?
4:35 When you almost die, but don't...the simple things in life mean more... like that squishy feeling you get when you sit down in your freshly-shat pants.
** the anchor has left the ship **
Nick Andrew
That's one way of sinking the submarine hiding under the ship.
Tankrit Kiddo
@2:00 Bahala ka! No more anchor! Dropped all the way! 😂😂😂🇵🇭
I'm assuming all that first ship was carrying was chains? :O

Son....that is coming out of your paycheck.
Corey Johnson
Excuse me Lucifer I dont mean to bother you but....... Lucifer : dont tell me another ship anchor smashed into hell agian
This makes me feel better about any mistakes ive made at work

What a coincidence I’m dropping anchor while watching this video 👍🏾💩 hahah
Brian Likings
You had one job ONE JOB

Welll.... I'm glad the guys at the beginning of the video managed to get that weird diesel engine going.

How random... TIL people actually fail spectacularly at dropping anchors...
I can’t imagine how loud that must been in person.
Mark Holmgren
I had the honor of dropping the anchor from the USS LONG BEACH with a sledgehammer l had to knock away a pin to start the chain falling,the whole ship shakes as the anchor drops
Sophie Lever
These aren't from 2018, seen before. Screw you InfoByte and your brand of cheap click-bait.
When you’re approaching the skull fort too quickly
Matthew McKeon
hah....jokes on you ....we didn't want those anchors anyway.
Cralos Rodriguez Von-Samosa de Aquas
Having dropped a few anchors in my time, I have never seen such a bunch of half ars*d amateurs in all my life
Ken MacMillan
That last ship is the USS Tarawa (LHA-1). It happened in 2001.
You are the weakest link. Goodbye!
Innaman Joubert
Anchor overboard to Davey Jones' locker and f the consequences.
0:40 - where that WD40 when you need it
David Trevillian
Looks like they have anchor management issues!
2018? Just some bad copies of videos posted years ago! :(
That first vid... When you think your girl is almost done arguing with you...
They could of just stopped it with a screwdriver!
Jack Anderson
Anchors away *Starts fire and burned ship down
Marc Wouters
These ships now sail more eco friendly with less weight , win win situation !!!! lol !!!!
What a maroon
excuse me but where the fire is emanating from is where you need to lubricate the damn thing. You can hear the chain rubbing on the shroud as it rotates and the shroud is bent.
Danny Coe
Scotty put on the brakes Scotty. !!!!!! We got no brakes Captain we got no brakes!!!!!
7:20 "tackle lost" it's not lost, it's right there. At the bottom of the ocean!
so long story short...damn anchor you scary

"Charlie, you know this is going on your permanent record, don't you?" " And we're going to have to deduct this from you paycheck."

Biggest fear of the sailors is fire. Biggest fear of the owners is, replacement is going to be VERY expensive.
perfect stranger
please sir, I want some moor

Sucks to be those guys on the anchor detail and having to explain to the captain how you lost the anchor and chain, and messing up the forecastle as well.
Augustus Maximus
imagine it's your First day and you Are one of this guys :D
Rich Gwinn
That seems to be 1,260 feet of chain. Math check.
Dresden Black
Throw out the anchor.....rattle screech done captain.
No chain no problem 😁
🤔.... A bungee cord should do the trick, to recover chain and anchor with no problem at all 😂 😂 ROFLMFAO 😂 😂

I spent the better part of the summer of '74 in Seattle in Lake Union drydocks wire brushing and painting anchor chains on a Coast Guard cutter. The last shots on the chains- port and starboard- were secured to pad eyes on the bulkhead in the chain locker with some stout manila line. If it got down to there and the chain is whistling out like in the videos if the ends were fastened with chain links to the pad eyes they'd rip the bulkhead out possiby causing structural damage. The manila line would give before the bulkhead did. Don't know how they do it these days.

Now I know why ships are big. It’s so they can carry the chain!
Mitchell Smith
Ground control to Major Tom, keep turning until it goes like hell.
Yes,, a very weird spectacle to view 3iQ personel in charge of 40 tons of steel rope go freestyle. So, Cousteau,, if you're down there,, our ship dropped its necklace.
andrew daley
Captain is the anchor chain out crew member yes captain are you sure oh yes were sure. Andy England
Chris Wimmer
Just like watching CNN
Barry Tipton
I take it they are not meant drop so fast lol
I remember being on a us navy ship and the captain couldn’t get the anchor up it was stuck. In the navy losing your anchor is no bueno so he dragged that rock the ship took forever to get anywhere it took like weeks.
LOL 2:10 I swear I saw that on TV when I was about 15 -- now I'm 38!!! 🤣😂
Benjamin Cole
This is the feeling of those dreams as a kid where everything was overwhelming for no reason and you couldn't stop it
Dennis Reyes
Brembo brakes can handle it lols
Mighty Mystery
In many ships, it is customary for a senior member of the deck crew, an officer or the boatswain's mate himself, to monitor letting go the anchor. Once it breaks free, momentum and the weight of cable can get away unless the brake is eased handsomely. Patience is key. These deckhands did not take that into account, which led to grief. Shiphandling is a matter of patience at start, caution in advance, and anticipatory planning in stopping. Getting a ship--or an anchor--started, requires breaking inertia. Once that breaks, the mass involved already is loaded with momentum, despite the illusion of low speed. Starting has no limit, but stopping has a definite danger point. Anchoring in deep water requires tedious patience. "Rattling out", is to be reserved for emergency, in shallow water. The Watch Officer took way off and backed down long before the anchor point. Patience in anchor laying is intuitively just as necessary.
Larry Slemp
Damn man, it's almost terrifying just watching the video, can't imagine being there!!
I would do that job like a man... with no ear plugs
Lee G.
This video would have been perfect set to music by Queen dont stop me now
Bob Dunchad
Holee Crap!! @ 4:00 Don't see how that much flying steel missed him.
Itachi Uchiha
A Megladon clearly had hold of that first one.
Even my Nokia 3310 could record in better quality.
Coming home from Germany on the USNS Patch  my buddies and I were bunked in the Brig because they had no more beds on the ship and when we docked in NY. about 4 AM and we were sleeping they dropped anchor. it was so noisy we thought we hit something and I jumped out of my bunk which was not really a bed but like a canvas hammock and I ran up on deck and we saw the Statue of Liberty glowing green in the dark. it was really noisy
WTF! How do anchors even work!? That's what I'm off to find now!
Excellent; Tugboat push point directly under Ship Anchor!
Joseph Patton
Hold my beer man,, I got this... Famous last words
Neville Robertson
Was looking for a sick base drop.... Not really an anchor drop vid.
Gu Nesnaj
Surprised to see that they don't have more sophisticated system to lift or drop an anchor
RidgeRider RC
I really want to know how loud it is from the inside of the ship
Peppa pig
That happened on a ship I was on. The anchor just ran away and there's nothing you can do about it. We couldn't even slow it down using the brake so we could put it in gear.
Deep Spot !!!! LOL Next time you park yer boat there...park somewhere else.
Pipeliner Skilllabro
AND the Next video is how to pull an anchor back up after it falls so fast that high tensil strength steel starts to burn.
"That waters cold, deep too."
Radio Wales
A new (and novel) way of winding up enough charge to propel the ship clear across the Atlantic on kinetic energy.

Was Rodney Dangerfield driving that second boat?

Seems silly to get pissed when a fish takes your hook now hey
paul yancey
As I recall You can slowly pay out chain hydraulicly on most anchor winches..(Macgregor...Ellsen...Maxwell....DMT )....the band brake on most are to lock them only and prevent/reduce shock back thru the hyd. drive stowed or moored (then the chain lock applied to take full load)....well,shit happens tho..don't know if they was in emergency stop or already suspected probs with the system...sea trials timed anchor test or what?? .but makes for good viewing ........that bo'sun is gonna be pissed having to go get that
Wait for it... Wait for it... Wait for it... OOF
kool vid,, only 85 items blocked lol
Richard Balls
What am I doing with my life?
CJ Smith
What's spectacular about an anchor potentially severing a bridge
Kyle M
Lol why does this happen. There HAS to be a better way to do this. Why is it NOT being used?
i wonder if the navy has ever thought about making those pulleys electric motors... os that as the chain is going out (which seems to be when most failures happen.... it can use its electrical generation ability when being turned with no current being fed to it... to add electrical power to the ship and also add massive resistance to the chain going out so the brakes dont burn out.
piggypiggy pig
I simply can't fathom this out. :)
Chris Pfeif555
that's why i fly...leave them boats alone..

For those without hearing protection may your hearing RIP

General Zod
I knowit was scary for those involved but, i found it quite funny and laughed at their expense! 😄👏
Jefferson Jaca
2:00 hala ka no more anchor! classic hardworking working filipino seaman!
Michael Eugene
The first video reminds me of a track song that sounds like the opening of "flava in ya ear"
anchor: "i feel like bustin' loose, i feel like bustin' loose"
Old vid but still impressive as hell !
