    Looks like a cool machine but I’d like to see a better video of it working?
    The video shows nothing but a few nozzles moving in arcs? No before and after?
    No how this thing is attached or how it would work real world? I’ll reserve comment
    until I can get more information.

    Well the video is a bit far away for a good view but is you look in the very beginning you can see the cleaned chain above and by the 19 second msrk you can see the crud being blasted away pretty clearly.
    No clue as to how they attached it I would guess that it is hinged in 2 halves and is suspended in one spot while the chain is slowly retrieved through it
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Thats not an anchor chain. Anchor chains dont grow barnacles. They get mud adherence and it gets hosed off as it comes through the hawsehole.
    Its a mooring chain and it will be getting cleaned for inspection, pitting and corrosion, possibly U/S testing. A tender, (probably) will have retrieved the chain and it is being cleaned over the side before being hauled aboard for the testing.

    Cheers Phil
