What do u mean by height above the hull how it’s measured…what is upper most continuous? deck is it measured from deckline…what about timber vsl who has raised poop deck.  Sailing vsl rule in detail. Which rules apply to sailing vsl…what does it tells. Sailing vsl situations. What is root cause analysis? Manouvering light…how do u use it what are the requirements? RV rules in brief….fog signal of making way and underway. What is the difference btw dem… In rv where is it mentioned u can’t alter yo port and for which vsl u can. How do u define overtaking in rv… How will u come to know u r overtaking a vsl inoperational radar both. Ok now u decided not to overtake …u tawo and freq increased…and port bow u hear fog signals of  two vsl and stbd side two fog signal of two vsl…what will u do…fog signal inoperational and radar inopt…u already took tawo…ok now astern propulsion but still u r doing some speed how will u avoid the risk of collision… Again annex 1 about sidelights separation. Why in sailing vsl rule..the wind to the port side of the vsl has to keep clear…why not stbd… What is barometer? What is barometer dip? What if pressure is dropping? How u know TRS is developing and how is it approaching? Where u can’t use buys ballots law? Diurnal range.F1
VAZ18-OCT-19Rules of section 1,2 & 3 None were direct questions. No situations, no cards. He wants to see your understanding of the rules and wants you to connect all the dots between the sections. A lot of Cross questioning. Will rule 19 apply when you sight the vessel or a light just less than 1 mile? Ans – yes rule 19 still applies because restricted visibility is a general term and not to be used for one to one situations. Also too many cross questioning to check if you stay confident with your answer. How will you determine risk of collision in r.v (He wants to hear all available means) I answered Radar, Ais, sound signal, VHF. He said I missed out one, he didn’t tell me the answer. Annex 1 few questionsF1

VAZ14-SEPT-17Secondary front Rule 12 (deep conversation on this rule ) Horizontal and vertical seperation of lights , will confuse u bht zada bt stick to wot it is written and use common sense .. Ammendments of ror came in 2007 and came into force in 2009 How was ror protocol made to a convention Super refraction and sub refraction Amplitude in detail with diagram Position lines Squat and how to reduce squat Mob on starbd side Sound signals frequencies And their decibel figures for whistle gong and bell Manoeuvring light specs and disposition Gyroscope and gyrocompass differentiation And wich one is north seeking and how it is made north seeking Wich authority approves the disposition of horizontal seperation of fowrd and main mast head light Can u alt co to port in rv Gnomonic charts and great  circle sailing Do we do great circle sailing now or no Draw a gnomonic chart Intercept on and off the arc what does this mean How will u do routine call on satc egc reciever when egc reciever is off only egc is working No other gmdss equipment is working What is MODU ??F1 
VAZ21-JULY-17What is SBCM What all A3 gmdss equipment are maintained by the maintaining company and by what authority Batteries for portable VHF wt Also for uhf wt Alternative of navtex, I said egc He said can u transmit emergency message on egc I said yes, he said wrong and many more believe me guys kuch samajme nahi aaya par phir bhi I managed to tell jo aa raha hai wo Phir pucha interco ka latest edition kab ka hai and many more very high level He was impressed told me I’ll give u func 1 par NITIN bhi toh one and only hain unhone bola make historical wreck banao Batao all round light vertical distance- I said 1 and also 2 2 or 3 situationF1 
VAZ21-JULY-171) your radar is on 24 miles.. u can see a land which is 50 miles away… How? 2) when 2 or 3 lights carried out separtion between them…. I told him 2m and 1m thing as per annex1…. He said wrong 3) he asked me from where height of light taken…. I said above hull… Then what is above hull….i said upper most continuous deck….. He said wrong….. 3) manoeuvring light distance…. I said as per annex…. Said wrong…. Then i showed him ror book….. He said don’t argue….. 4) rv situation one vessel fwd of beam and fishing vessel starboard beam action? I said reduce speed…. He said wrong take wide alteration to port and pass ahead….. I said as per 19d wrong said don’t argue…. Please listen to errol Fernandez speech… 5) difference between raster and vector charts…. Said wrong…. I told him as per Captain bhatia book….F1

VERMA9-SEPT-20crossing situation, reducing CPA , at what point you will take action as stand on ( he wants us to take action when 6-7 miles before close quarters situation as a stand on vsl), in between was asking the understanding of the situation as per the rules ( no need to quote word by word, if u can explain it better using important key words), then overtaking situation with understanding of rules, and then restricted visibility situation with understanding of rules. ( All the situation my vsl is stand on & also while giving your action, when he said range is more than 4 miles, Don’t blindly say ‘5 short & rapid blasts’ as its range is only 2m) He was satisfied with my situations analysis, so didn’t ask much. Passage plan from Mumbai – Antwerp (Belgium) using Chart and ECDIS (wants practical knowledge only) – start with rough passage route, then from chart catalogue see the positions and the required chart to be needed, small scale and large scale, then check what all charts u have, what needs to order and are they corrected till latest NTMs, rest all you can add as per your knowledge, ( don’t rush up take it slow and explain as much as u can, he will forget what was his question and he will move on to next)…wants to hear how to plot T&P correction practically ( with pencil ), what are nav warnings how to plot, where to get. Routeing charts information? When are they published? Admiralty sailing direction, when are their new publication published ( I’m still not confirm, but i said annually for routeing chart and 3-4 yrs for ASD. he said it’s not right.F1

VIBHUTI19-DEC-17didnt ask anything .. direct situation.. crossing overtaking with towing vessel pilot vessel right ahead and some restricted visibility just wanted to hear from the very everything starting from determing roc to action . gyro 300 true 300 magnetic 294 var 2e gyro fail what course u will follow then variation 1w now what mag course u will do turning circle advance transfer everything… thats itF1 
VIBHUTI18-DEC-17He will ask u so many situation,and when you will answer he will also try to confuse you but just stand by to ur answers don’t panic. Situation like crossing, overtaking and rv and so many. Ur gyro  failed action at sea. What do you mean by Compasses compared,courses checked. Gave a question related to Mag. Heading ,gyro heading and now ur gyro fails what course will you steer. What is true vector and what is relative vector. When will the true and relative vector be same. How will u know a pilot vessel is underway or making way. Radar not working bearing constant, range decreasing a target near the horizon how will determine her movement. Then showed few card like towing ,fishing, pilot vsl and few more. First 20min only situation and actions. Next 5-10 minutes other questions.F1 
VIBHUTI11-SEPT-171] You see a pilot ship right ahead seen from stbd side. Master on bridge no time to take bearing how to find if Roc exist. Ans: From true and relative vector on radar.   2] true course 300 mag 305 var 1e and gyro fails action. Chart change var 1w what will u steer Ans 305   3] vessel 3 points from port bow bearing constant range decreasing. Ans: it is an overtaking situation but I stated it as a crossing situation    4.] a ship from stbd side u can c her masthead and sidelights both which is again 4 points on stbd bow. Ans] I said as per rule 14b head on and so alter course stbd bt it was wrong and he said no roc exist so maintain course and speed. 2 3 more questions bt all from his previous set of questions. He gave only 5 and said depends on internal if he considers you.F1 
VIBHUTI2-JUNE-17Started with reading file and all previous questions. And then Situations.. sooo many situation and all weird. U have to think for 2 min to understand the situation. Wants to hear particular answer. Till that time will continue cross questioning .he will guide u and give u hint. Do not require rules word by word but require to know the meaning of each. Track line search. Draw and explain. What is `S’ and how to calculate. Vsl 2 mile from shore started dragging anchor action. As I was giving the points started making the situation worse for ex. Get engines ready then said engines not responding. Tugs not available etc etc.F1 
VIBHUTI9-MAY-17Wheelhouse poster All details  Tactical diameter and all Def Situations.. You are pdv …action.. Go step by step What situation You’ll take action acc to which rule.. 1) one pilot vsl ahead…first identify vsl.. 2)ram…action ….quote rules..as in y are you taking action and which rule.. 3) towing vsl on fine port bow..action. 4) Rv.. you are overtaking from port qtr.    Action 5)now you are vsl being overtaken,from port qtr 6) cdb Vsl overtaking…roc 7) you are following tss vsl crossing from stbd bow vice versa….action … 8) gyro..300      Magnetic…305      Variation 3e      Gyro fail…what course to steer..      Answer was 305      Nw chart changed course is still same..      He asked will the magnetic change..       Say if variation on the chart changes yes it will..       Var=1w.       What course will u steer?        Ce………… 5w..        Now Var=1w..        Deviation ..4w.. So again ce..5w  Add to gyro we get= 305 So.magnetic 305..F1 
VIKAS19-SEP-17He asked me about my ships and then what was the cause of failing last time, I told him I got confused in ROR situations, so he told me ohk then we’ll start frm der only, Asked me 7-8 simple crossing and overtaking situations Asked me just to explain main points of rule 19 not to quote Safe speed Raster and vector charts GPS working Cardinal buoys Boxing of compass Passage planning How you will choose no go areas? Squat IAMSAR patterns NUC & vsl around lyts And some thngs more…F1
