Re: To the cowards that moderate this forum...

I deleted your original topic after answering the posts and letting it stand for over a day. The mere fact that you say it has ample support from everyone is a sham, as you only had one response from someone as......I will use the word misguided, as yourself. The fact you refer to me as a coward is ...

Ausie icebreaker

Even if this goes over budget to $500 million, this is fairly cheap. Now I wonder what the actual build will be lik.

Another davit/rescue boat incident

Over the years, I’ve read so many articles about davit accidents with crew hurt and killed, I can just shake my head. Killing lifesaving devices. :evil:

Re: MSC hits dock at speed

LOL, I've read that in the comments on FB.

Mark them off as as a cruise company to never sail on, along with all of the rest.

Re: El Faro letter to NTSB

Martin, those guys wouldn't have gotten off the ship IMO. The boats tell me that the davits were old rule, they wouldn't been able to launch with the list. Maybe not with modern davits either, they would have been in liferafts. When we go to sea, we accept risks that are unacceptable in any other in...

MSC hits dock at speed

Anchor was dropped......I wonder if his telegraphs locked up. I had a ship that would happen to at unrepeatable intervals , a glitch in the system. We finally tracked it down.

Re: El Faro letter to NTSB

As soon as I see open lifeboats on a ship like this, it pretty well says all about the company and regs to me. It was going back to work in the north, came from Alaska before this, but they never spent the million $ to give them a closed boat on a modern gravity davit, and not expected to by Class o...

Do you think this is pie in the sky thinking or the next step in a collaboration to safety?

Inside El Faro

This makes for grim reading. It was easy to speculate what had happened , this has been written from the transcript of the bridge recording.

El Faro Lesson Learned

The lesson learned on the El Faro is LO suction on machinery and list. It must have been where the dart hit when they threw it at the wall of EF sinking issues. Remember this gem from DWinsor? It is also still too easy for management through various means such as various forms of intimidation or aft...
