Chapter 5 Boat Seamanship
SHACKLES AND TURNBUCKLES Particular attention must be paid to protecting the threads of shackles and turnbuckles. They are the parts that will be eaten away first if not cared for properly. Turnbuckles should be opened out frequently; the threads should be brushed well; and the movable parts should be lubricated with graphite grease. WINCHES, CRANES, AND ANCHOR WINDLASSES The  maintenance  and  lubrication  of  heavy  deck equipment, such as winches, cranes, and anchor wind- lasses, is performed by personnel of the A division of the engineering department. You should bear in mind, however,  that  the  deck  divisions  work  with  this equipment.  For  your  own  protection,  therefore,  you should assist a division as much as possible in the maintenance  and  lubrication  of  this  equipment. SUMMARY In this chapter, we have discussed equipment and safety measures used on the deck of today's naval vessels. More   detailed   discussion   may   be   found   in Boatswain's  Mate,  Volume  1,  NAVEDTRA  10101,  and other  publications. You must observe all safety precautions related to your  work  or  duty  assignments. 4-46
