Re: Another Carnival Triumph

Interesting article from gCaptain in response to the comments from Senator Rockafeller. http://gcaptain.com/cost-rescue/ Not sure I completely agree with the view point, I think the Coastguard have saved Carnival a lot of money, relating to salvage costs and probably reduced the size of the lawsuits...

Re: CCTV in the engine room

I sailed on a series of ships with cameras in the ER space, and on one of the ships the quick thinking mate on watch stopped an engine which he saw something (fuel) spraying everywhere. There were no cameras in the control room and I would not have been happy with that, they are a novelty at first a...

Re: Emma's engine under water

I've watched this discussion and have not been able to say much about the incident. The immediate actions of the crew I don't know, but I will say that the water tight door was shut.

Sorry, cant/wont say any more.

Re: Italy cruise ship Costa Concordia aground near Giglio

Lloyds list - 28-11-2012 IMO chief questions where report is after nearly a year THE focus of some countries on prosecution, rather than investigation, after a maritime accident is the Achilles heel of the passengership industry and action must be taken to learn from the mistakes made in the Costa C...

Re: Massive container ship on fire and adrift

I was also very surprised at this, as an ex. seafarer I would have at least hoped he had the notion to phone or visit the bridge and mentioned the smell, especially after he had "spotted a thin, wispy plume of brownish-yellow smoke rising from between two stacks of containers". Hindsight i...
