    As when taking over older vessels the documentation to be maintained
    with regards to special surveys , class evaluation reports and condition
    evaluation reports are not very clear, especially to new masters or
    masters who have never worked on older vessels , have drawn up the
    following guidelines with respect to documentation that is required for
    enhanced survey file as same is verified by PSC and master must be aware
    wrt what documentation to be shown.

    be prudent to maintin the documentation as per the instructions below as
    succesive masters come and go and chances of misplacing documents only
