Will give you various case studies of collisions and will ask you to review them using the rules and cross question of whatever answer you give him Lights of aground vessel, NUC , and wig craft vessel and also the day signals of them. Will cross questions you on the difference in the lights between making way and underway. OWA triangle and followed by a lot of cross questions, Passage planning essentials! He just heard the appraisal planning monitoring and execution and then changed. All the radar functions what they are and what do they do. In-depth questioning on true motion and relative motion and how do you use true vectors and relative vectors. Trial manoeuvre but not too much in detail. Little bit of performance standards of Radar. ECDIS mostly regarding updates! Doesn’t want theory.. Mostly how will you update on-board Various restricted visibility situations||F1|
