Back to ISM documents. Had mentioned about records of Musters

How will you prove that the vessel is seaworthy. Dont just mention
about having on board valid statutory certificated. You have to mention

Entries to be made in the OLB upon departure port. Told him about
the drafts on departure, freeboard, date and time of departure and next
port of call. Still he wanted to hear something else. Started mentioning
him about the general entries in log book but he interrupted that
everything is fine and running smoothly. Started running him through all
the contents of OLB but again he stopped me and moved on. No idea what
he wanted with regards to entries in OLB before departure.
MAIB reporting procedures

What all to report?
Asked me to tell him all the statutory certificates necessary to carry.
Its not easy to say it out and not miss out on any certificates. I missed out
on almost 5. Suggestion: Segregate the certificates as per their
convention. Its comparatively easier.
What is Masters obligation with respect to Intl Sewage pollution
prevention certificate?
What is the validity?
What will you check on the certificate?
Discharge criteria of Sewage?
On sea voyage, OOW calls and reports VDR alarm. Actions? All
equipment are fine and VDR is completely dead. Told him all the stuff but
missed out on increase in frequency of posn and weather plotting. Also, u
can add as to a portable recording device to be used to record the audio

Note: Capt. Jackson wants a structured answer. And very particular about ISM,
ISPS and Emergencies. So basic formula, if you dont kill anybody and do not
pollute the environment then you have a good chance. Although the no. of
questions might seem small for the time period I took to convince him but, he
goes in depth and tries to extract the answer out of you. He does give you hints
at times.
I extend my gratitude to all the staff of STC college who guided me through the
crash course.
And my friends and family for their best wishes.

Good luck.
