Never been on a ship, but 20 years of moored semi sub drilling rigs, 105 lbs a link, usually 4000' feet of it per leg, 8-12 legs, and another 12000' of wire behind that. When it goes, it can get exciting quick. As Steve said, RUN, or in our case, duck in the control cab. Nothing you can do once brakes are glazed and it's on the run.
