Another of our fairly frequent visits to Brazilian waters, where the Bram Force can be seen rushing across the seascape. It is one  of a class of Edison Chouest anchor-handlers built out in Brazil in about 2015, powered by four Cats developing 27,000 bhp. In accord with what seems to be the current design of anchor-handlers they are great big things, maybe larger than they need be, requiring much of the power available just to maintain station because of the windage.
