Yeah it didnt sound like that was the first time he'd seen it happen - he called it before the big bloke grabbed it.

I imagine there a bit of pulling power behind one of those beasts - could get dicey pretty quick depending on the size of your vessel and the strength of your cleats

Eden Fisherman Jackie Warren described in a video interview how Tom would grab the anchor line of Jack’s fishing boat from the sea bottom and tow him around for fun.
J.R. Logan’s daughter Margaret Brooks describes being on her father’s motor yacht towing a dead whale and Tom trying to stop the boat by holding the tow rope in his mouth. The teeth missing from the right hand side of his upper jaw were possibly lost as a result of this struggle.

Perhaps most extraordinary, a journal from the turn of the century describes: “Davidson threw a painter(anchor rope) over the bow of his boat. It was immediately grasped by two killers. They took the rope tandem fashion with a half hitch around the shoulder and started for the quarry, overtaking the opposition. They had in their mouths 60 fathoms of 2 inch coir rope.”
The stories of the killers actually towing the whaleboats out to a chase have been discouraged by the Davidsons in the fear that they might seem so fanciful to outsiders that they would throw doubt on other stories. Knowedge gained from captive cetaceans show that towing boats around is well within their capabilities and intellect . Aquarium performances regularly display small boats being towed around by dolphins.

Here's a link to the "Killers in Eden" documentary.

edit - just watched the doco - they talk about ropes briefly in the last 10 mins of the doco but it seems the Davidson family wanted those stories left out.

They do look at the skeleton and teeth of "Old Tom" and it does have rope sized grooves in its teeth. - They also talk about "Old Toms'" reaction when the “law of the tongue” wasnt respected.

My theory is - if you pull on enough anchor ropes - some terrified fisherman are going to throw you treats to get you to leave them alone.

It would be like playing the pokies for a killer whale
