Master review. Today has submitted Master’s review of SMS. This is one of the master onboard jobs as per ISM code to review the shipboard performance and company management system how was the system effective on board.
Yeah… from my thought was many things to add, insert, remove and amend.

As we know onboard AHTS/supply boat is simple but not simply as we thought as a small boat or tug boat. From my observed supply vessel so more safety on direct practical rather than other type of vessel. also more equipment need to maintain properly to rich the goal of company safety policy.

But don’t think that if more safety need much more form and many things have to perform..!! no.. it just needs a simple practical form performance.

Yeah.. just imagine it.. just like a car… or motorcycle, you need to make sure all part, turn/side light, brake, mirror window, steering well at on your maintain attention.

Visibility is good.. I can see light of the town from here. Yes..! this better night. Current also slight. I think tonight is slight to calm night. Yes! I can imagine like that. Yeah in my position but not in weather fax reported position. There is a typhoon concentration. Sea is relative.. it’s not absolute. like tide sometime high sometime low and depend from where you are.

By seaMan, TW hight sea

Today, 06/Mar/2017,
Magnama 2 Block 16,

Has been more than 1 month passed, the activities still going on as the usual the mariner’s life at sea.

Also has more long time, the blogs no updating from any news, any some of copy paste article or something good to share.

So, if i wanna telling something, the secret maybe…, the Indonesian mariner life some time better.. sometime working, have job.. sometimes less job… get job and going to sea! 3 months latter finished contract and get back shore no job.. no job again.

it’s reality ,, realities of some group of seaman life..!

Now.. also here… maybe i get better and back again to blog.. creating and writing something to enjoying fun of the seaman life story… until the time will getting back to sign off, vacation and staying home, back to problem again, less job.

So, as the subject I’m gonna writing some fun things about Bangladesh offshore.. maybe get help for anyone of seaman on the planet.. which has been a over the world relationship of life at sea .

Will be continue..
