Re: TC 2nd Class for FV, NFLD

They don't want a Chief Engineer, they want a factory breakdown mechanic with a 2nd Class to meet the Safe Manning requirements of MPR part 2.

Re: Engineers for CCG

They do that banasa, and hire graduates of the CCG college on a temporary/casual basis. Engineers off the street haven't been painted the appropriate colour, so are generally ignored, in my experience.

Re: Marine Steam Engineer, Muskoka Steamships & Discovery Centre

I've sailed on a triple expansion up and downer (similar to the one on the Sandpebble) with an oil fired Scotch boiler (yes, I know what a Weirs Kinetiker is!) but never a coal fired one, that would need a gang of Paddies to keep going!

Re: Emergency/Direct Bilge Suctions

It is not an offence to discharge oily water in an emergency. If the bilge flooded after grounding, or the Old Man playing bumper boats, that big red handwheel which operates the emergency bilge valve is opened toot sweet, Chief or Captain notwithstanding. I'd rather apologise than swim out of a flo...

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

I would suggest you look at the Academic requirements for 3rd Class in TP 2293. There is no syllabus as yet for NAR at 3rd and 4th level, so I suggest winnowing out the basic stuff for 2nd Class NAR.
