Re: Engineering Officer/Officier mécanicien, Canadian Coast Guard

That is interesting that you never were called because they do need engineers.
You may need to redo your resume.

This is an official job poster:

Re: Canadian Labour Code changes

I don't go to sea anymore, but I despised the 6/6. You only ever seemed to get 4 hours sleep and with smaller crews, if anything went wrong, I would be up 18 hours then get 4-5 hours of sleep. I know they went to 12 hour days after I left the ships. I thought that was rather barbaric given the size ...

Engineer friends... Engineer wanted for Bahamas recovery effort. Need an engineer with good all-around abilities from electrical wiring, small engine repair, rigging and improvisation, construction and fabrication skills to critical thinking, analyzation, and problem solving. This is not a shipboard...

Re: Dead Hand of Government

Exactly. The comment about socialist government made me roll my eyes. I have found over the years as I progressed through work, I looked at it from a taxpayers view, then the ship view. the project manager view, now I look at the wider impacts because of others educating me in the much bigger scope....

Re: ER noise level

As a project manager, I sure gained some respect for the detroits. We would disassemble them and they would be running with cracked bottom ends and worn right out. If you could get them started, they kept going. I've also spend many a cold morning cursing them on barges as they needed a fire to get ...

Dead Hand of Government

I saw this op-ed and thought I'd post it here for discussion. I, quite frankly, think he has a narrow view of the issue. One shipbuilder told me that a boat that would cost industry 800k, would cost the government 1.2 million. He said, I don't know why that is, but it is. This would be, say, a 60 fo...

Fire on Fredericton

I translate this to, some dumbass was welding somewhere they weren't suppose to be, before the fire watch arrived and set a mop on fire, or something as embarrassing! The paper really needs to get a person who knows ships to advise them :lol: https://www.thechronicleherald.ca/news/halifax/time-may-b...

Russian Bans Cruise Ship from Arctic Waters

Given that the Russians had a nuclear incident in Nyonska on Aug 8, this was not surprising. I wonder what exactly is happening radiation-wise up there. The Russians shut down 2 of the monitoring stations. https://www.bairdmaritime.com/work-boat-world/passenger-vessel-world/6298-russia-bans-norwegia...

Re: Diesel generator - Pcomp high

We have found with fuel valves to go with the manufacturer and not knock offs. This may be your problem. What you think may be the same, may not be.

Re: Query about Lifeboat EK general exam

I think the first one covers it as BP says. Every lifeboat shall be powered by a compression ignition engine. No engine shall be used for any lifeboat if its fuel has a flashpoint of 43 °C or less (closed-cup test). (LSA 4.4.6.1) The engine shall be capable of operating when the lifeboat is flooded ...

Re: Query about Lifeboat EK general exam

It’s been a long time since I did my 2nds, but check SOLAS for lifeboat requirement. It will tell you exactly what is required. If you don’t have access I’ll have a look.
