Re: Atlantic Canada Shuttle Tankers

I have heard good things about TeeKay in the same regard; competitive bids on contracts is how it works, and with a commitment to build new ships for the job, I see no reason why they didn't hire TeeKay. But I'm just saying Canship has been doing a pretty good job and it's a NL based company which i...

Re: Spill Timing

Not too long ago a C/E I was working with wanted to to this for the emerg. Gen (or Fire pump?) and I was really looking forward to seeing it done! But...it was pushed back "we'll do it tomorrow, no the next day...", and then I got off...so I never got to see it (or know if it was actually ...

Re: Scavenge air and water mist catcher

Okay I'll shoot with a question. ACC plus to clean an air cooler. It recommends dilute ACC with a ratio of water and to flush for 4-6 hours, and here's the hypothetical: The day is over and the flush hadn't been done long enough, so the flushing pump is stopped for the evening. Next morning the flus...

Re: Used air compressor oil- how much white metal is too much?

Manuals I have read from air compressors have said "excessive wear" regarding bearing checks and changes - but exactly what is excessive. And trouble shooting the bearings seems to generally come from compressor noise according to the same manuals. Boss man says box it up, like Merlyn said...

Re: The most unusual job Beam Ender

Put some strategically placed dock tires on the bulk head, ballast the ship over a bit for a decent list and let gravity do it's business. And if gravity won't do the work see if a few sacrificed -big- comealongs will give gravity some persuasion. haha Like BP said to minimize damage righting them f...

Re: Gulf Ice Video

The office gives the cargo destinations and assumes it takes about the "normal" amount of time... Then you get delayed in the ice... I was sailing winter 2013 December and the run was supposed to be a 4 day trip to pick up cargo and drop it off. We got stuck in ice all the way up the sea w...

Re: TC Seatime screw up

Good to know! The St.John's office has a not-so-positive rep for being...uncooperative...and I have experienced it in parts during my cadet time and sea training manuals. So next time I will be getting my time counted I'll be going in knowing the regulations and policy to back myself up, which might...

Re: R -410a versus NH3

I'm not someone with NH3 refrigerant experience of course, but from my mostly-completed science degree majoring in Chem I understand you can make a pretty effective drink from some compounds containing. Used from curing hangovers or nerves to even being used as an old form of red bull, if you will?

Re: TC Seatime screw up

If there are no articles to sign onto, because the deck crew isn't aboard for dry dock, testimonials signed by the Chief (and/or the Capt) are sufficient evidence of date of engagement and the date of discharge? And with that it makes me think of another question, for proof of sea time is it necessa...
