Aberdeen MCA office
Capt. W Bennett (from Belfast)
0900-1000 18/09/09

Started with small take about type of vessels etc etc and then straight into it;
Passage planning, gave me a coastal passage from Aberdeen to Great Yarmouth, APEM etc publications blah blah
Tides, how you know if enough water at destination, neaps and springs, tidal diamonds
Fixing vessel position, GPS and asked to take bearing using Az ring on a compass in the room, (arrow down!!!!)
Convert compass to true, asked me to write down
Correcting charts
A lot of Meteorogy stuff, sources of WX data how would the forecast effect my passage plan
Masters standing orders, forming bridge watch keeping team and night orders
Navtex
Calling the master- fire in engine room my actions as master
Radar potting, and rule 19!!
Crossing, head on and overtaking all PDV
Smartie board , everything!! Day signal and fog signal
Buoys IALA B preferred channel markers, cardinal and isolated danger, top marks and lights
Distress signals
MoB, my actions as Master
Working the vessel, safety ie ISM risk assessments
Crane and LOLER regs, safe lifts and inclining the vessel, why can be dangerous
Stability, ballasting bilges and FSE
Code vessel surveys, who does and what looking for
Ships paperwork
Opening a crew agreement
Drills
Salvage requirements, i.e. vessel must be in distress, an imminent peril to ship life and environment must exist, master can negotiate with lloyds open form, only get paid is vessel delivered into safety

The end, a further bit of chat then told I had passed
