well, im a ctt3...so i dont really deal with any of that...thank hahaha. but when we left the yards 2 weeks ago, we dropped anchor like 40 miles offshore, and when we backed up a lil bit to get the anchor to grab...they backed up too fast or something, cause that **** broke the damn hooky thingie off the anchor (sorry for the non-technical terms...im not deck seaman, so i have no idea what its called. lol) my ship is realllllly old, you would be surprised how many oldtimers laugh @ me when i say im on Shreveport. they used to be on here back in the 60's and 70's. lol
