The Ships Business and Maritime Law part was probably the hardest part of the orals. I think based on the examiner, it could be a lot harder than it was all the same. The examiner went down through the Syllabus and asked me a question about each regulation, act, convention, etc. Most of the focus was on MARPOL, MLC 2006, IMO, MOSH, CLC Part 2, STCW, ILO, SOLAS. I think he was mostly making sure you could identify which act did a regulation belong to, those kind of things.
We also chatted about metallurgy a fair bit, ice class vessels and what type of steel you would see, A60 bulkheads and where they are located, crankcase and start air explosions. It was a huge relief to get this done, and it's soon time to start knocking off the Part A's for my First Class, before life gets too hectic.
I've attached a copy of the Syllabus he used for Maritime Law and Ship's Business.
