If I understand your question correctly, you're asking why the ropes descend through the deck? Anchor cables weren't stored on the winch, there would be way too much cable to fit on there. The machinery is only used to help raise the cables and pass them down to their actual storage location, coiled in the hold.

That is correct. Those ropes were stowed below the deck in giant coils. ;)


There aren't but two options: do it FAST, or do it RIGHT.
