Re: Premature pipe failure

Check that the jumper pieces are on the flanges, the gaskets insulate sections of pipe.

On one ship I was on the CE had the main sea strainers coated with Belzona Superglide.

Re: Dock Damaged with CCG Ship Drydocked

It is astounding that someone would actually cut the cables with a ship up. The rudders were out, bottom valves apart and the seabay open. I wonder if the genius thought it would float away.

3 die in cargo hold

Totally preventable deaths. If it rots, rusts or decomposes, it will use up available oxygen.

Russian Floating Dock Sinks with Aircraft Carrier onboard!

Marine requirements for floating drydocks are non-existant. They fall under insurance requirements as far as I know because they are attached to land. Anyone can correct me if I am wrong. Halifax Shipyard lost one of their docks about 10 years ago to a sudden failure. A Chief Engineer told me about ...

I was at their last one. They co-hosted with SNAME and the papers were very good.

Captain Bennett awarded merchant navy medal

As an engineer, I find it even more impressive that she is Captain on a sail driven ship. Mainly because anything pushed by wind is rather mysterious to me! https://www.prweb.com/releases/captain_belinda_bennett_awarded_2018_merchant_navy_medal_for_meritorious_service_by_hrh_princess_anne_as_the_fir...

Tump and Low Sulpher Bunkers

The US president just seemed to clue in on the implications of the IMO resolution for low sulpher fuel on 2020 domestic fuel costs:

Alfred Eshun

My Condolences to his family after this tragic accident. Authorities say a Canadian man working on a freighter has died after he fell off a dock on the St. Lawrence Seaway in northern New York. WWNY-TV in Watertown, N.Y., reports 57-year-old Alfred Eshun of Quebec lost his balance and slipped off a ...

Re: Dangers of DPF ing

Well now I know you have a good heart. That must have had it racing. I have not witnessed this exact scenario but I've have heard of that similar situation on a smaller diesel generator a bit before my time. They had to throw a bag over the turbo inlet to shut it down. I have seen the end result of ...

Re: Oil spill by malfunction validated in Canada

I think it is to force the government into strengthening laws, but it is appalling. If maintenance is such that a ship has a spill of fuel, should we have a legal mind say, but it wasn't intentional? Well no. I never went on watch saying, well today I think I'll have a spill out on deck and into the...
