Witherby: Anchoring Systems and Procedures
This publication provides recommendations and guidance on safe operation and satisfactory performance of anchoring systems, including design considerations, operating procedures and routine maintenance. It is applicable to anchoring systems and procedures on all types of ship, irrespective of size.
Following an increase in the number of incidents involving anchor losses, windlass motor failures and associated personnel injuries, OCIMF revised and updated the original 1982 publication to highlight the lessons learnt from incidents, provide improved information on anchoring practices and recognise advances made in anchor systems. The publication assesses the design capabilities and limitations of anchoring systems and equipment with the aim of enhancing the safety of operations.
