They'll get some young hotshot who'll live on his phone for a couple of years until he burns out.

Seaspan Launches Second CG Ship

I don't think the first one has been accepted by CG as of yet, but the 2nd ship was floated out yesterday.
The first ship was outfitted at Ogden Point in Victoria.

Re: MSC Opera Crash In Venice

I'm wondering if the telegraphs or propulsion control locked up. There's not much design info online for those ships that I have seen.

Lifeboat accident in the making?

I poked around a bit, but ship info for the cruise industry seems sparse. Are these the 270 person lifeboats that have been allowed by Class for these huge ships? What is concerning is the boat that hauled up on one davit, probably giving it a bit of a torque and overload. So the ship sailed later t...

US Marine Industry in Trumpworld

Fascinating reading on the US marine industry and Mitch McConnell’s wife as secretary of transportation. It’s pretty swampy.

Leak from Firefighting system

Kills 10. Another preventable accident, I'm willing to bet.
Are there more accidents this year or are they better publicized?

Re: Confined Space Death on the Rise

yet the demands on a seafarer for levels of training are higher. You can't get into the business unless you have training behind you, even the ABs. There is no OTJT any more. Even the task of keeping current is burdensome: https://marine-cafe.com/maritime-training-overload-whos-listening/?fbclid=IwA...

Confined Space Death on the Rise

Over the last 15 years or so that I have been involved in this forum, I kept unofficial track of FV fatalities, lifeboat davit accidents and tank entry fatalities. Until I realized nothing was changing. You would think that there would be improvement over the years, but preventable deaths still occu...

Re: Cat 3508 JW pressure issues

3408. The engine failed to start and started to wind down. Do you remember how at the very last instance the flywheel gives that kick back in the other direction before everything comes to a stop? It seems at that instant the engine got a start command and restarted. It was all very strange and the ...

Re: Cat 3508 JW pressure issues

This is interesting. When we bring in a OEM FSR we make the fatal assumption that everything is going to be good after the fact. We had a Cat that failed to start and when it ran down to stop,the control system restarted it at the exact instant that it kicked in the opposite direction and it started...
