Join Our Telegram (Seaman Community)

Welcome to the website where you can find answers for the CES test on the subject «Anchor Mooring Procedures». This site will help you as a marine specialist improve your knowledge with the help of open information, where you can find questions as well as answers for them. CES/CBT based on practical information and marine specialists experience.

CES tests developed for evaluating seaman basic knowledge by Seagull Company (rebranded as «OTG»), is an evaluating online-tool, used for revealing any professional preparation needed in specific fields of knowledge, defined by STCW.

CES tests have proven themselves as good tools for the selection and recruitment process, as well as advancing the level of knowledge of the current officers and crew. Ocean Technologies Group use various subjects for question creation, which includes:

  • Crowd and Crisis Management;
  • Integrated Navigation System (INS);
  • Ballast water management;
  • Handling and Stowage;
  • Vessel operation management and safety;
  • Marine engineering;
  • Maintenance and repair, etc.

«Anchor Mooring Procedures» subject includes theoretical and practical information about safety working with electrical equipment. Knowledge of this information directly shows employee’s competence who holds a relevant post on a vessel. Anchor mooring procedures involve selecting a suitable location for dropping the anchor, slowing down the vessel to a stop and lowering the anchor until it reaches the seabed or riverbed. The anchor should then be set and sufficient scope should be paid out to ensure that the vessel can swing freely without dragging the anchor. Finally, the vessel’s position should be monitored regularly to ensure that it remains safely anchored.

This page contains answers to Seagull CES (Crew Evaluation System) test about Anchor Mooring Procedures, and serve as a database of questions and answers, using which seafarer can prepare to exams for getting certificate of competence, or just to challenge yourself with knowledge in this theme.

Right answers marked with this sign .

If an anchor in deep water seems to have bedden in, what is the best way to raise it?
Use short movements on windlass in forward and reverse directions to break the hold.
Use the windlass motor in short bursts to raise and break the hold.
Apply the windlass brake, engage the bow stopper and use the engine to move the vessel and break the hold.
Wait for the tide to turn the vessel slightly and break the hold.
Once a vessel is brought up, what is the advantage of disengaging the bow chain-stopper and allowing the chain cable to be held by the brake?
In case of bad weather, more cable can be paid out easily to increase the Scope and improve anchor holding power.
The bow stopper may get jammed by the cable link when strain increases in bad weather, requiring use of engine and windlass power to release it.
The brake has more strength than the bow chain-stopper.
Strong winds can release the bow chain-stopper.

What usually influences a ship when completing the first phase of a Standing Moor?
