|15-NOV-19||SHARMA||Previous attempts question u have to tell him he will verify n not ask anything unless u tell him atleat 50%. All abt LPG operations as i am LPG guy(suggestion- he will ask u abt last ship cargo u carried and basis on that he will question max of d questions). How many B/L – i said 12( as per Capt. JB singh) he started laughing. Documents for cargo operation. Grain hazard. Concentrates. High density cargo- he wanted to hear it will affect the stability more – as chief mate concern. Methods to secure grain cargo- i started mentioning abt bundlng saucering n al he said its all obsolete- den i mentioned abt special construction of bulk carrier with topside tank n al he was happy but asked how will u secure cargo which is between the deck level n hatchcover top(basically inside hatch coaming area) – i got stuck so he said u answered settling as hazards so how will u take care- i said i m not aware he said dont worry amount of grain in dat area is very less it will not shift. Action – cargo liquified/ i said abt reducing speed adjusting ballast course n al he said if it liquified u cant do anything u will straight go in water. Better take precautions before loading. Asked me abt TMC n MC. LPG discharge ops in detail.. Why we use heater? Why we use booster pump? (All dis were based on my answers to him). ImDg in detail kept me asking abt class segregation. As i explained he asked how will u stow m from where u will get- as per him it shud b stored as per category in DGL ( he said imdg not upto the marks). Types of LPG ship. Proof load n criteria. He is very humble and polite person and listens to ur answer very calmly. Gets frustrated if u answer him wat he dnt wana listen. If u get stuck in between he will explain u so that u can recollect n answer him. At 1830 Capt. Sundaram asked me if i can come on monday as he was having some imp stuffs to attend n seemed busy. He said its ur call if u wana come or i will sit n take ur orals now. Gave me 5 mins to think outside. (Just to confirm with fam n al if i got any commitments on monday). I went inside and told him i will come on monday- he said ok come prepared.||F2|
