An earlier report describes the winch, ground tackle, wire rope and methods used in anchoring the 310 ft long USNS J. W. GIBBS, AGOR-1. A number of catenary curves covering ropes of various weights was included. In the initial report, emphasis was placed on anchorings utilizing 58 in. diameter, extra improved plow steel wire rope with an independent wire rope core. Additional anchorings using this construction of rope, as well as later experiences covering anchorings on armored cable and 3 x 19 wire rope which was recently developed by the industry, are covered by this report. Catenary curves covering cables and ropes used in later anchorings are included. Author
