Double-link Pivoted Gravity Davit
CAPSTANS Capstans are mounted on deck to ease the handling of large, heavy mooring lines and wires. These capstans may be separate machinery units or part of the anchor windlass. The capstan's spool-shaped drum keeps the lines from slipping, especially when wet. Most  capstans  are  electrically  driven.  Depending on the class of ship and its size, capstans may be located any place on the deck, but they are usually found on the forecastle and fantail. HEAVING  LINE A heaving line is a light line used to get a hawser ashore when mooring a ship to the dock or in passing a heavy line for any purpose. One end of the heaving line is fitted with a monkey fist to assist in getting distance when heaving. After making the heave, the other end of the heaving line is bent to the hawser with a bowline. The  heaving  line  is  coiled  carefully  with  about two-thirds of the coil held in the right (casting) hand and the rest in the left hand. In heaving, the right arm should be held straight, and the line in the left hand allowed to run out freely. Frequently the problem in not getting a long heave is that the coil in the left hand is not arranged clearly for running. Prewetting the line is done to improve distance and handling. To become proficient in heaving, you must  practice  frequently.  Every  Seaman  should  practice making casts. A poor cast is always a reflection on the ability  of  the  Seaman. BOAT  DAVITS LEARNING OBJECTIVE: List and explain the different types of boat davits and the safety devices. A boat davit is a device that is designed specifically for handling a ship's boat or boats. The boat davit is designed to handle the ship's boats from the stowed position,  through  the  lowering  and  hoisting  evolutions, and returning the boat to stowage.
