Boats and Survival Equipment
CHAPTER 18 EXTERNAL EQUIPMENT OF SHIPS LEARNING OBJECTIVES Upon completion of this chapter, you should be able to do the following: 1.   Identify the ground tackle used on Navy ships. 2.   Identify the boats and survival equipment used on Navy ships. 3.    Identify various equipment used on the bridge of Navy ships. 4.    State the purpose of antennas and radar on Navy ships. The   external   equipment   of   a   ship   differs according to ship type. For example, a guided-missile cruiser  (CG)  might  have  guns,  missiles,  torpedoes, and  a  close-in  weapons  system  (CIWS).  However,  a tank landing ship (LST) may only have guns and the CIWS for armament. The LST has bow ramps and a stern  gate,  but  the  CG   doesn’t.   Both   ships   have similar ground tackle, boats, and survival gear. In  this  chapter  we  will  look  at  some  of  the ground  tackle   used   on   Navy   ships.   We   will   also identify   some   of   the   boats,   survival   gear,   bridge equipment,  and  other  various  gear  used  on  Navy ships. GROUND TACKLE Ground  tackle  is  the  equipment  ships  use  in anchoring   and   mooring   with   anchors.   It   includes anchors;  anchor  cables  and  chains;  and  associated equipment, such as chain stoppers, bending shackles, outboard  swivel  shots,  and  detachable  links.  Figure 18-1 shows a typical ground tackle arrangement on a forecastle. ANCHORS Anchors    can    be    defined    by    their    stowage locations    aboard    ship    or    by    their    type    of construction.  Bower  anchors  are  carried  on  the Figure 18-1.—Typical ground tackle and chain stowage. 18-1
