What they train students to do is deal with these situations Do everything they can to avoid collision, Whether it’s reducing speed, almost coming to a stop in the water, and then they’ll release the anchors.

“But if we can’t slow down the ship,” the captain added, “you can lower the anchors down and have them drag or surround along the bottom to create resistance to slow the ship down.” But for that to work, you need time and distance.”

He said:“If they called back and said we had power, the first thing we would do is go into full emergency mode to try to stop.”
