Re: Telephone Cord Stops Main Engine

It didn't say emergency shut down, just shut down.

And the alarm message was: slowdown alarm

This whole thing feels inadequate on many levels lol

Re: wages

Gotcha, yeah it'll be a good idea to come up with a "plan of attack", and then get some more ideas and support. You say it's for peers affected by the SSB, but we were all effected by the debacle... So, while I expressed my opinion about the SSB, I fully support trying to attempt some reso...

Re: wages

Yes, it always puzzle me that we, as a group, fail to communicate our wants and needs in a cohesive way, or even share information here, which would lead us to make better individual choices. I would suggest that this lack of discussion had led to the clusterf**ck that is the new TC license system,...

Re: What to Do ? Fire on the ship while in port.

Yeah, Normally on that ship we were too - full procedure for draining. But having missed Christmas, late for crew change, and the deck hand on watch that was supposed to be doing the draining procedure was going home the next day... To put it simply, he didn't do as comprehensive a job as necessary....

Re: wages

Sounds like CSL. Which will be pretty much exactly the same as algoma cargo ships. The trillium class ships only have Chief, 2nd, 3rd, so the 2/3 do 12 hr days - so consistent OT will make lots of $$. 6 weeks x 6 weeks I believe. The older ones have 2/3/4th engineers I believe still. Self unloaders ...

Re: Transport Canada issues

My dealings with the St.John's examiner's; Stan, I've found reasonable. Santa, I mean Mike M, more often than not I found unreasonable. As if he's looking to fail you, trick you and trip you up. My biggest annoyance is they only offer exams every second week, and take 1.5-2 months at least to correc...

Re: wages

On the lakes, I'd say 4th and 3rd class would make less than those numbers unless they're getting 4 hours OT every day.

Probably average accurate for 2nds.

And $650 plus would make sense for chief on a tug or something and of course plus for anything bigger and beyond.

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

Your are not at all wrong, and I find it to be such a sad sad joke. It's incredible how slow and painful this process has been for TC - and therefore us.

What's going on in Ottawa JJ? You're our only link to any insider information hah the people in my local TC office don't know anything...
