He wants to hear the formula and how the course speed error and damping error is corrected) 8) Action if vessel aground (  the first step he wants to hear is stop engine and apart from tht steps such as  u vl ask engine room to change to upper sea suction, lights and shapes and damage stability). 9) Errors of Doppler log 10) Horizontal spacing of lights 11) Cut off limits of side lightsF1
12-JUNE-18BAWEJA– planning in transiting Suez as a Chief Officer – ARPA Alarms – Synoptic charts – TRS – Dangerous quadrant and in which lat TRS occurs –  North Atlantic currents – Only two ROR Cards – sailing vessel of less than 20 m or less with side lights in a lantern and the other one Two white lights one above the other and side lights (towing or power driven vessel) – Only one situation – Crossing in clear visibility and you are the stand on vessel what actions to take and if she doesn’t alter then what actions to take – Collision – your actions – What is Trial Manoeuvre and whats the sign displayed for it on radar and how does it work and its regulations – Gyro principles, Errors and how to correct it – Ship routing system – INDSAR  and INSPIRES – Difference in VDR AND S VDR. What all data is stored in VDR extra than SVDR – Gyro fails – Actions – Principles of watchkeepingF1
15-MAY-18BAWEJA1) Radar to be started at open sea, procedure? Went deep with radar questions like performance monitor, efficiency, etc… 2) Performance standards of ARPA? 3) 2 cards, 2 situations (RV and clear visibility) 4) 1 card of buoy (Isolated Danger) 5) Passage from Mumbai to Kobe (Japan) in December, plan as a chief mate? 6) Last ship make of Gyro? 7) Vessel aground in open sea, Action?F1
1-MAY-18BAWEJAAnchoring in ice Damping in tilt Principles of watchkeeping Alarms of ARPA Some 9-10 cards, No situation TRS – approaching signs Grounding action Why u stop engines in grounding? Collision and how to do damage control? Radar starting procedure Why radar goes in standby mode? What does it do?F1
