I quite understand the North American accent and make the required allowances for it, so there's no problem there Martin. :)

Re: Preferential Trip testing

Easy, get the cook to turn on all the hotplates, then get the boatdriver to veer out a couple of shackles of anchor cable. That will overload your switchboard

I've worked with Ruston gas turbines in the North Sea rigs am LM 2500s in the Halifax class frigates, RR is considered to be the same junk as their diesel engines, great for selling spare parts!

Re: Suicide and sea

Well said BP. I've stood on the transom and watched the surreal display at night, where the luminescence of the wake seems to entice one more step.....just one, into the warm water..,.,.,. but resisted and turned back.

Re: Filling out the ER Log

Sea service has to meet the standard set. eg if you have 90 days, or 1.5 months in the previous 12 months, you will need a further 6 months in the 4 years before that. If you have 6 months at sea in the previous 5 years, then came ashore as a Super, etc, you'd need 12 months in that position to meet...

Re: Open positions for Engineers

Again, pay per view, they provide a list of employers, usually 3rd world, and charge you monthly, If you want to work for $100 a month, this is for you.

Re: High Speed Squirter Craft

Roostertail is just wasted energy. I was quite amazed at the Halifax Class frigates, no roostertail at 30-odd knots, no quarterdeck vibration, just a smooth acceleration. You could stand a loonie on it's edge on the messroom table and it never moved. All the energy, 37 MW, goes into propulsion!

Re: LIABILITY OF CLASSIFICATION SOCIETIES

Nobody wants liability of any kind, least of all TC. ergo, self-inspected small passenger vessels and delegated ships of all vessels over 150 GRT. Nothing to do with me!
