Re: What to Do ? Fire on the ship while in port.

The effect of free surface was demonstrated very well on the Queen Elizabeth in Hong Kong Harbour in the early 70s. She had been bought by a Chinese and renamed "Seawise University", intended to be a floating school. The project ran into financial trouble and 36 fires, on 10 decks, broke o...

Re: Hurricanes

There's the rub! Political will! The actual logistics of getting bits and pieces delivered to various parts of the world is no problem but the thought of somebody paying for it is. There is no profit in saving lives and reconstructing infrastructure, is there? It's a dead loss. After all, it's all a...

Re: New Examination Process

Nope, the Employer, in the Canada Labour Code part II, is the person or persons who direct the work, not the Corporate entity which provides a pay cheque. I have done MOSH inspections at which, after the initial "information meeting", the top 4 have been politely asked to leave while we me...

Re: Hurricanes

I've often thought that Trinidad would be an excellent spot for a hurricane relief base, it's south of the normal TRS zone, but handy for the island chain stretching north to BVIs and Puerto Rico. West of T&T, the Dutch Antilles, in particular Curacao, is generally south of the usual TRS zone. B...

Re: New Examination Process

One of the conditions is that you must have met the standards of STCW III/2, which covers both 2nd Class and 1st Class. However "Management" standard has been fixed at 2nd Class. As you point out, there is no point in stressing about 1st Class exams, they are not required for Chief Enginee...

Re: 2nd Class Electrotechnology

Electronics is covered in depth in the ETO Exam, which has not been published yet. Very basic knowledge of Electronics is needed for 2ELC Exam, that's why Reeds Vol 6 is entitled "Basic Electrotechnology for Engineers" and not for ETOs. :)

Re: Preventing Engine Failures

P&I Clubs are the last hope to keep Marine Engineering alive. As breakdowns of machinery occur more and more often, repair costs and downtime will increase expotentialy. As profits fall, ship owners will be forced to face the fact that dumbing down Engineering standards is not the smart thing to...
