Re: Stern tube

no experience working on a trawler. Does the stern tube have an arrangement to check void space between the sea water and oil seal. If you do...draw a sample and you will know if your seal has compromised. Check the vent is clear.

Re: UK COC TO CANADIAN

you should go to a transport canada marine safety office and meet the examiner and ask all the question . In BC, each engineering exams are held on a particular date/day/time and not "any time of the year" . You can ask for a copy of the exam schedules.

Re: Korean Ferry Sinks

this master declared himself as being a passenger when asked by rescue crew. Telling the passengers to stay put in their cabins while the ship kept listing and eventually sank . This is gross incompetence.

Re: Korean Ferry Sinks

from this tragic incident it is apparent a timely evacuation could have saved a lot of life. Giving all the power in the hands of one person "master" should come with limitation?. IMO should bring changes and make provisions in this respect that if the crew feel that a ships master gross i...
