Captain Jake Anderson, Captain of the Saga, discovers that his rudder is loose and risks sinking the ship if not fixed immediately, which is challenging given that they are in the middle of a storm and over 460 miles away from the nearest port. Will the crew be able to patch up their ship and avoid catastrophe?

I was on the f/v Northern Voyager and she sank about 5 miles out of Gloucester Mass in the late 90’. I was 18. Lost the rudder with no way to patch the hole.

The hydraulic ram that is used to move the rudder was still in motion when he was welding with his chest in direct line of the arm, why in the hell didn't they shut down the hydraulics to the ram before working next to it. that could have easily killed him.
harrier331 Dag geleden
​@A little bit Intellectual The whole reason that hydraulics are used in these applications in the first place is because the fluid that they use is incompressible, if they close the valves on either side of the cylinder so long as there is still fluid in the system the cylinder would be fixed in that position. Hydraulics in general, especially hydraulics which may need to be worked on outside of a controlled environment must have a way of safely performing the tasks required, I could go into the safety standards that apply but I don't have the time for that.

@harrier331 when the system has no pressure it would move even more due to the currents and waves pressing on the rudder from the outside. Most probably there isnt a locking mechanism
harrier331 3 dagen geleden
@85305 This particular boat has two rudders and two screws, one of the rudders hydraulics could have been locked out whilst maintaining radial control. This is besides the point, once again, people should NEVER be in the operating range of hydraulics with no means of escape, its that simple.
85305 3 dagen geleden
@harrier331 being able to steer a several hundred thousand ton boat in the middle of the ocean in the middle of a storm is a concern 100% of the time... Have you ever piloted a boat, much less in the middle of a huge storm in the middle of the ocean? "Not steering" is never an option ever
harrier331 3 dagen geleden
@85305 When working around hydraulics the system should always be shut down and locked out, there is no question about it. Being able to steer is not a concern whilst this is happening.

Losing a rudder isn’t the end of the world. If it was northwestern that would be an issue because she’s single screw, but this is a twin screw boat and you can steer with the props. Typical discovery over dramatizing everything

@Andrew Brady i thought all crew evacuated to a 47’ coast guard vessel in 6-8’ swells. Certainly a tense situation but certainly not as scary as 40’ waves?
Andrew Brady

I was crew (of 13) on the f/v Northern Voyager and we lost our port rudder. We had an 8” hole. We did everything we could, but we had to abandon ship. Fortunately the Coast Guard was there in quick time. When the water was about 4 feet deep on the second deck we got our survival suits on and went topside. Try jumping on to the bow of a 110” Coast Guard boat in 20’ seas. Timing was everything. All of my stuff is still in the STBD stateroom in the bow, middle rack, outboard. That company did so much shady stuff. Honestly lucky to be alive. We were so far out during that storm the night before. We made it about 5 miles away from Gloucester Massachusetts before all efforts were hopeless.

That's the main reason why I don't watch many Discovery channel "reality"-type shows anymore. There's far too much manufactured drama that gets recycled between episodes and even different shows. Moonshiners, Gold Rush Alaska, Bering Sea Gold, Dangerous Catch. It's all the same stuff happening, just in a different setting. - Someone gets injured or arrested and can no longer participate - An important piece of machinery breaks causing stress and delays - A goal/target isn't met which upsets the boss(es) - An argument between two individuals occurs and is settled by the end of the episode - Bad weather cut the day/season short I remember one mining show began a season saying "thunder snow is an extremely rare event which only occurs once every few years," but nearly every expedition that season was cut short by "thunder snow" causing the miners to quickly scramble off the mountain as if they were being chased by an invisible man wielding a knife.

Just imagine the EMMA Maersk a 1,300 foot long 15,000 TEU container ship lost a stern thruster tube.. fittings that stack around cables and hydraulic hoses blew out .. the hull flexed enough that water came thru the shaft seals.. came thru vents. water ended up being 29 feet deep in the engine room. almost to the top of the 100,000 horse power main engine. . the danish accident report has fantastic pictures and descriptions.. google.. Emma Maresk danish accident report for one heck of a read.. and a good idea for those working aboard fishing fleets to look at things before they become a disaster.. i cannot imagine not having a pnumatic tank level gauge set up for not just the fuel tanks.. but holding tanks and various compartments.. on a friends boat.. we ended up being holed by something and completely flooded the fuel tank compartment. we had to go down and pull out poorly sealed pipes and conduits and plug the holes to reduce the volume of water leaking into the engine room behind the fuel tank compartment and the sleeping compartment in front of it.. took 9 pumps to keep up with it till we got the leaks fixed.. then we had to do something about the hole in the hull.

It could have been bad but they just eliminated catastrophic failure. Keep crabbing. Done for dramatic effect. Even if it did drop, and you know about it and where to address it, all you have to do is stuff rags inside the rudder shaftlock it’s not like there’s a lot of water pressure or hard to get at.

@Mad Man Marine Easily? If the rudder post dropped through the hole then you would have a 8 - 10 inch hole in the bottom of your boat allowing a huge amount of freezing water to enter the compartment. I know the Royal Navy train to plug breaches like that and I am sure its the case for most navies around the world. These are not sailors intensely drilled and trained for such situations. I thnk under the circumsatnces Jake's bodge job was pretty well done.

If the rudder can actually fall out why don’t they have a chain fitted as standard?
Cameron 3 dagen geleden
Depending on how the boats rudder was designed the rudder could definitely come off. A common way rudders are attached is through use pintils (essentially a vericle pin), think of solid round bar vertically that fits into the very bottom of rudder shaft (very most bottom of the boat). This keeps the rudder from dropping down. Then theres most likely some kind of bushing ontop of the rudder shaft between the top of the rudder and the hull, this keeps the rudder from moving up. As long as the rudder cant move up it cant come off the bottom pintil and you wont be able to drop the rudder. So in essence if the rudder can move up it can come off the pintle and it could drop given the steering components let go. This is how they are able to drop a rudder when the boat is out of the water and they need to replace bushings and seals. Heres a few diagrams of how rudders are mounted. Heres a quick link i found of the saga on the hard, go to page 12 and zoom in on rudders to give a better idea of how they are mounted.

Koen 18 dagen geleden
Just like discovery you are exaggerating a lot. There is always a watertight door separating the rudderchamber from the rest of the engineroom, so sinking is not possible when that door is closed. Besides that, it has a double propellor and rudder, so it will be hard to manouvre but its possible to back to safe waters.

yup and if they lose all four components the ship will sink. The first is the rudder chain this connects to the rudder and moves it lose this you have no control, next is the rudder itself lose this you can't steer, next is the rudder shaft if you lose this you sink, and las but not least is the piston this moves the rudder lose this the rudder won't move. Jake had to make a temporary bracket to secure it if you lose the rudder the boat will go down just like Bismarck and they don't want that.
