USNS Button Anchor Chain Retrieval Operations

In early June, the USNS Sgt. William R. Button performed a routine anchor drill at Agat Bay, the southern section of Guam, when the anchor windlass broke loose and dropped 13 shots down in the water. Cabras Marine Corporation acted quickly to be part of the solution in retrieving the anchor chain for the vessel. Since the vessel had been anchored indefinitely at the time, Cabras provided launch services from the Commercial Port of Guam down to Agat Bay for the vessel. Cabras, in conjunction with Guam Industrial Services, assisted with the anchor retrieval operations by towing a crane barge to the vessel, cutting the anchor chain from the vessel, and then loading the anchor chain onto the crane barge for salvage. The total evolution for operations lasted 48 hours.
