The authors performed an experimental study using a training ship in order to investigate the characteristics of the hull movement of a ship lying at single anchor, the cable tension caused by the above movement and etc. Based on the results of the study, the authors propose a standard procedure for safe anchor watch and a new anchor watch supporting system using a PC, a DGPS and an anemometer.}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Oil Spill, Oil Spill Response, Baltic Sea Region (BSR), Optimal Allocation, Method of Optimal Allocation, Anchor Watch Supporting System, Anchor Watch, Small Merchant Ships} }
