13-OCT-17SRIVASTAVAWhat is weather routing? Different equipments u use for it? Quote rule 5, 6 and 19 Few situations on TSS and RV Cards of NUC, CBD- day card, dredger, fish with persuine Ur on watch and baro goes below 6mb? How to determine location of TRS What are weather routing charts and info u get from them? Symbol of occluded front Maintenance on mag and gyro compass Why we prepare deviation card? Who does it and how? When do GPS fails? He wants to hear the Jamming of signal and world war situation Errors of GYRO.. and what is ballistic effect- i screwed up in this but he was ok.. said nobody usually is able toF1

14-MAR-19SRIVASTAVAGave me a paper and asked me to draw ETA, While drawing he asked as per which regulation, I said SOLAS chapter and regulation I don’t remember, He gave me SOLAS and asked me to find out, it was in chapter 2. He asked me why is it chapter 2 and not 5. Requirement for ETA deployment, I answered. He was not satisfied. He wants exactly what is quoted in SOLAS. Again asked me to read from SOLAS.F1
