Ship Loses Anchor and Chain

It’s not pretty.

 

YouTube user Zjarany Zbyszek has uploaded an intense video from Turkey of a large ship beaching at a wrecking yard, where all of the boats are destined to become scrap. I have to feel a little sorry for her.

 

“The Art of Stevedore” is a video by filmmaker Alex Hallajan featuring time-lapse footage of the Port of Long Beach, a Southern California container shipping port that ranks as the second busiest in the United States — after the Port of Los Angeles. The video follows the containers as they move from trucks to ships, in a process most likely taken for granted. The process hasn’t changed in hundreds of years except today we do it with stunning efficiency while maintaining safety and environmental cleanliness. The word “stevedore” is a term used to refer to dock workers and is believed to have originated in either Portugal or Spain.
