By the way: Your sample with the car is failing this most important effect I was talking about: If you would have very strong wind from abeam then even a car would need a drift angle and an additional steering wheel angle to compensate the wind effect – much stronger than the normal corrective steering you mentioned.
Finally I like to thank you for your offer to the academics / hydrodynamicists - I would be open for any remaining question and kind of ideas... Maybe you could have a look on our YouTube platform (search for ISSIMS) where are more movies which might be of help – the next one will be on wind effect on turning circles…
I am an active marine pilot, and for me this video has a practical use! Therefore I would like to point out that you should not speak for everyone here ("basically this video tells us nothing at all"). I believe that the people on this platform are able to develop own opinions and assessments.
For those who don't drive ships try driving your car with a constant steering position. Even on a desert road running straight and level for as far as the eye can see you can't just let go of the steering wheel and stay on the road. The driver is constantly making small adjustments.
Video How Ship Anchor Works? - Procedure For Anchoring a Ship at Sea
#Anchor #shipanchor #windlass Anchoring is one of the very frequent operations onboard ships. A number of variables and external factors influence the duration and location of an anchoring operation. While the type of seabed is of utmost importance during anchoring, soft muddy grounds or clay bottoms are best preferred. It should be taken care that the anchoring bottom is free of power lines, submarine cables, pipelines or rocks. Various methods on anchoring include consideration of...

Video Fast Time Simulation of manoeuvres - SAMMON
This video shows the underlying principles of the SAMMON software tools based on Fast Time Simulation of manoeuvres. It describes very shortly some of the features for manoeuvring planning and conning / monitoring with danymic prediction which are shown in more detail in the other movies on this channel.
Video #Dangerousladders Trailer
The #DangerousLadders campaign is a global initiative to improve the safety of pilot transfer arrangements and in particular the safe rigging of pilot ladders. As part of this campaign, Fidra Films have developed a series of informational and educational films to illustrate the dangers and also best practice. Generously funded by the sponsors below, all of whom have an interest in the safety of maritime pilots, the series aims to reduce the incidence of non-compliant ladder arrangements,...
