Q. 1) What do you mean by squat ?

X
    X
    0

    The squat effect is the hydrodynamic phenomenon by which a vessel moving quickly through shallow water creates an area of lowered pressure that causes the ship to be closer to the seabed than would otherwise be expected. This phenomenon is caused when water that should normally flow under the hull encounters resistance due to the close proximity of the hull to the seabed. This causes the water to move faster, creating a low-pressure area with lowered water level surface

              When a ship is delivered from the yard (with machinery, appurtenances, fixtures) its weight without stores, fuel, crew, etc is called "Light ship". Anything weight which is not a part of Light Ship is called deadweight. Eg Crew, fuel, stores, ballast, cargo, lubes etc.

                Deadweight tonnage (often
                abbreviated as DWT for
                deadweight tonnes) is the
                displacement at any loaded
                condition minus the lightship
                weight. It includes the crew,
                passengers, cargo, fuel, water,
                and stores. Like Displacement, it
                is often expressed in long tons or
                in metric tons.

                                        10) stop all noises on decks so that the fog signals of other vessels  would not get drowned in  the noise ,,
                                        11) keep open the outer doors of the wheel house so that the fog signals of other ships may be heared, even if they are very faint,
                                        12) commence sounding fog signal before entering into the fog.
                                        13) reduce to safe speed before entering fog.
                                        14)restrict hold ventilation.
                                        15) record all the happnings in bridge record book.
