Re: Greasing stern shaft packing gland

No more dirty fingernails doesn't sound like a bonus, sounds like a negative...then again,probably when I'm old and have my c/e ticket I'll think a bit different, full of gusto still. heh

Re: GEA Westfalia OSE 80- 0136_ Bowl leaking

You say that the Separator is running as a Clarifier, this is very unusual these days. Many, many years ago it was common to put fuel through a clarifier to remove the water and then a purifier to remove the dirt. However, for the last 40 years or so the makers have preferred running the oil throug...

Re: Diesel Generator low frequency on high load.

Steadily decreasing to the under frequency trip, and manually bringing freq up before the trip has it continue to drop steadily, yeah. And gov wasn't touched... Hrmm. Like jk said, oem parts? And injector tests were spot on... All potential air was properly bled from fuel pump over haul? No stickey ...

Re: Ships and Drones

Reading these things, it just seems so laughably childish.
However...all the rules they are breaking, are actually legitimate concerns though.
Still seems a bit much for jus'a 'lil drone, though.

Re: Greasing stern shaft packing gland

Oh too bad, sorry man that's harsh. Make sure to make use of the training room, post up any questions - everyone I have seen post on here helps out great and all the math stuff I'm pretty comfortable with too, so if I could help try to answer some questions I'd give it a shot. So try to simplify alg...

Re: Greasing stern shaft packing gland

What's your normal schedule while at work? I know it can be hard to study book-stuff after work, but just a question a night should have you learn that subject in a single rotation.
Do you have the books you need?
What tests will you have to do for your next ticket?

Curious job offer email.

Good day everyone, I received an email today for a potential job position, funny thing is I didn't apply to the company offering it. I did a little of my background work, and something doesn't quite sit right. Here's a copy of the email. DAVOES OFFSHORE ABERDEEN OFFICE 59 Fraser Place, Aberdeen. AB2...

Knock off the over speed sensor and then make sure the mechanical over speed doesn't go?

Re: UnmannedEnginerooms

I've never seen a sensor reading N pressure in an accumulator...always had to hook up to that.
Probably not what you're thinking, so I'll keep pondering.

Re: UnmannedEnginerooms

I know the diagnostic plugs you mean, but i wouldn't be surprised if they brought that plug to it's own computer and with a program it initializes the reading process, avoiding having to physically fit the piece of kit. All engine data is available in real time watching pv diagrams, pressures, angle...

Re: ERR for BC Ferries in Tsawassen

Yes, figuring things or for yourself is my sentiments exactly when it comes to the workings on the ship. But then it gets toward emergency situations, plans, thought process, actions and reactions. If someone starts sweating and shaking trying to answer what they'd do in a fire, what would they actu...

Re: ERR for BC Ferries in Tsawassen

An engine's an engine's an engine. The more your mind opens to machinery the smaller it seems to get, so while machinery can be vastly different if you break it down to basic principals of mechanics, physics, thermodynamics, and electrotechnology the fundamental workings of any machine should be abl...

Re: UnmannedEnginerooms

Does it have something to do with the issues you had, or did it just cross your mind after witnessing their trouble shooting process?
