Re: There's that navy humidity reasoning again

But where do they use Rohr threads? BP I don't know about Rohr thread but I do know about where Whitworth threads are used :lol: BP I understand what you are saying about issues with drainage systems on A/C Systems. After thinking about it for a while I'm inclined to believe that part of the issue ...

Re: There's that navy humidity reasoning again

Problems, problems, if the believe inadequate air con is too blame and they want to run the ships longer, why don't they just fix the air con? Mad World, Military procurement. I have just read the article (link below) about the Royal Navy cannibalising spares from one ship to another and how it act...

Re: Irving looking for Engineering Cadets

Education Required: Currently enrolled in a related Bachelor’s Degree program, and in good academic standing I think they are going to have a hard time finding cadets that meets this requirement. I may be wrong but I can't think of any Marine Cadet program in Canada, outside the Coast Guard College...

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

The way I understand it, if the vessel is operational the Master remains ultimately responsible for the vessel and the safety of the crew. The Master then becomes or delegates responsibility to the Chief Mate or Chi...

Re: New Examination Process

Revolver, nobody hates safety for seafarers, Companies are a bit averse to paying for it, that's all. Seafarers always have been, and always will be, disposable. YOU just have to make sure you aren't one of them. That's why there are Safety Committees run and operated by the crew. Employers, ie, on...

Re: Preventing Engine Failures

I wonder if now that P&I Clubs are finally beginning to take enough notice to the point writing a directive outlining the basics of engineering principles will change the attitudes of ship owners and operators. I guess the P&I clubs are hoping that what is becoming more apparent, with this a...

Preventing Engine Failures

I wonder how many of the failures discussed in this forum and others like it can be boiled down to the simple failure to follow, what some would consider hard and fast rules, listed as reccomendations in this article.

None in open waters that I can recall. I've experienced what some would refer to as a "Near Miss" in confined waters such as canals and rivers when meeting another ship. Both ships pass close enough to each other at a closing speed between 6 & 20 knots that someone could easily jump be...
