On my Port State inspections in the winter, ships were detained regularly because the lifeboat engine wouldn't start. Education is required here, MDO has a cloud point of about -6C, so when it's 20 C below, it ain't gunna go! You have to use #1 diesel in winter, cloud point -20 or below. Same with lub oil, take the Genny 40 weight oil out and use 15/40. The genny oil is like thick grease at cold temperatures. I know, it's cheaper to use the fuel and oil available on the ship, but a detention puts up insurance rates and lowers charter rates. It also costs the Second a bucket of sweat trying to start the bloody engine! Better to spend a few bucks and do it right
