15-FEB-19Night card vessel aground,pd vsl pushing ahead… Mine clearance vessel ahead take action as per ror,company policy and BPG. Quote rule 19,7,8,18 and 1 What are dimenson of day signal and there spacing. Draw diagrame of Turning circle
2-JAN-19Towing vessel card whole content action was 1 short blast alter course to stbd. He said why 1 short blast, i said bcoz i am altering stbd. He asked why 5 times then he said which rule, I said 34(a) then he said quote, then another card with 2 possibility nuc and aground, I told the content then he said in reality how will u identify she is nuc or aground, I don’t wang card probabilities, i said by fog signal he said did i mention rv, another case i said we can look at the vessel whether moving or not if moving then nuc and not then aground, he said and how else i said we can see the size of vessel and we know the depth of water if depth is much more we cannot say this vl is aground , he said what is the another case u can identify whether nuc or aground, I said nuc 2 balls and aground 3 balls, then told quote rule 15 then all u know about ntm’s and then all u know about ECDIS.
15-DEC-17picked up cards & showed around 5-7 night cards. • Company UKC policy • Draw preferred channel to starboard mark in region A • Draw isolated danger mark,then also asked me characteristics for this mark. • Meaning of Flag U,F,L & later asked me for each flag how do they look. • Storm Signals
4-MAY-17Asked me why you transferred you file here? Asked about my professional info after telling him about 2-3 minutes I stopped He told in the same way you tell to your girlfriend also? Mariners professional info should be like endless I smiled and told him everything voyages type of cargo carried vettings bla bla bla Suddenly showed me one card tell me what’s this Cbd underway seen from stern I told him word to word One it came to action he asked me why you alter to stbd. Then next card NUC makingway seen from stern I was telling him the second probability he told me ok and qoute rule 14 I started quoting rule 14 word to word in the mean time he took my EXN sheet
