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.

Re: Premature pipe failure

Just a thought, there may be a sacrificial section of pipe installed to protect the rest of the system. This is suppose to fail and shouldn't be replaced with other types of materials.

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.

Lifeboat accident in the making?

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?
