Didn't really know where to post this.

I ran across this manual of how the AHT guys manage to find, catch, deck, and deploy those massive rig anchors.
Kind of interesting. :-))

The TV series Trawlers, Rigs & Rescue on Virgin 1 last week were aboard a anchor handler as they were recovering 2 of the 8 anchors on a North sea oil platform.
