Insane Clip Shows You What Happens When You Lose Control Of An Anchor On A Huge Ship

I know nothing about ships or the equipment found on board, so my thoughts on the video below are simply, “Wow. That’s crazy!

Real insightful, huh? Thankfully, a former ‘AB seaman’ jumped on Reddit to explain exactly what is going on in the video below.

“At the end of the video you see the chain go running through the hawse pipe. The hawse pipe is where the anchor chain runs overboard and into the water. The anchor chain started running and overwhelmed the brake that was controlled by the man in yellow. You can see him panic and slam the brake closed as it starts to run, but it was already too late. The fire is literally the metal of the brake melting.”
