Details

The Capstan is a Ship component and Ship customization Item in Sea of Thieves. It is a horizontally-mounted wheel used to raise and lower a Ship's Anchor. Its variants are purchased at a Shipwright and equipped via a Ship Customization Chest.

Usage[edit | edit source]

The Capstan can be used to drop a Ship's Anchor upon reaching a destination, keeping the ship braked while the crew is on land. The anchor can be dropped instantly, but raising the anchor requires more time and manpower. The anchor will not activate until the crank is complete; while the capstan moves, it can stop at any time by a player idling on the capstan. Bigger ships will require more manpower to operate.

When the capstan is damaged, it will lower the anchor and break off handles that must be repaired with Wooden Planks.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • It is possible to catch the Capstan while it's going down, allowing the player to hold it right before it engages for a very quick and timed stop.
  • There is no visible Anchor shown below an anchored ship.
