Just few days ago we have passed office audit by GL. This was first time for the last Five years when we did it without any observations. Clear report was issued. It is happened on 28th of March, and on 29th I flew to Emirates, to audit another our fleet vessel there.
While this hot climate I came on board on 31st of March and found some usual things. There are some pictures attached. Fist of all - mooring ropes on the drums, this subject already discussed with Captains and crew, secondly (ISPS issue) – hawse pipe forward, to be always closed when in port. And the last one, very important, all fire boxes were tighted up with a rope, so it was not possible to open and use it immediatelly. I really understood why it was like this, but guys from PSC would not.
