Q. How would you confirm that your vessel is brought up during anchoring?
Ans:- Brought Up:-
- A vessel is said to be brought up when her way has stopped and she is riding to her anchor, with the anchor holding.
- The terms ‘come to’ and ‘got her cable’ are sometimes used to mean the same thing.
- The officer in charge of an anchor party will know when the vessel is brought up, by the cable rising up from the surface towards the hawse pipe when the brake is holding it.
- The vessel should then move towards the anchor, causing the cable to drop back and make a catenary.
