Welcome back to the our channel for a feature on the production and maintenance of unique Anchors specifically designed for different maritime vessels. It never fails to amaze me. Anchors and anchor chains on aircraft carriers are not just big, not just huge, they are ginormous. Gigantic and Enormous in one word. I'm ex Boeing and have been around many world's biggest; planes, buildings, jet engines, paint hangers, etc. But Giant Cruise Ships, Container Ships, Tankers, and Aircraft Carriers impress me plenty. All of them would fit easily inside Boeing's Everett Plant, with lots of room to spare. It's over 1/4 mile wide and almost a mile long. Inside, it's over 100 feet to bottom of giant roof trusses where world's largest ceiling track cranes operate. The dry docks for biggest ships are much bigger than ships. The floating ones have to well. Float while holding biggest ships in the world. I’m curious as far as the anchors and the chains go why couldn’t they just put a heavy rubber coating on them in terms of protection from the elements of salt water?
