Loss of Anchor

A vessel lost one anchor and four lengths of chain cable during anchor handling. During the vessel’s previous drydocking, a number of chain cable lengths had been renewed on port and starboard side, including a number of Kenter shackles (joining shackles) as found necessary, due to wastage in excess of allowable limits. The remaining part of the anchor chain cable lengths and Kenter shackles were at that time found to be in satisfactory condition.
