    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

        9)try out pneumatic wistle and electric klaxon and the manual foghorn, by giving a very short blast on each, try out automatic fog signal unit,
        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.

                    Inerting is a method of introducing Flue Gas into the cargo tanks to maintain the C.O.T within non Flammable Range.

                        inerting is the process of mixing inert gases produced by M/E exhaust.into the cargo tank of the vessel to maintain the level of oxygen as well as to provide positive pressure while unloading the cargo.

                            The procedure which we use to test launch lifeboats is:

                            •  remove gripes/lashing wires

                            •  no one boards the boat

                            •  launch boat to water, doing brake tests on the way down

                            •  crew go down embarkation ladder or accommodation ladder and board boat

                            •  boat is taken away and engine/steering etc checked

                            •  boat returned and hooked on

                            •  boat lifted about 2 metres above water

                            •  self-release wire tested from inside the boat and boat landed back in water

                            •  if necessary, boat lifted again about one metre above water and quick release mechanism tested

                            •  all crew disembark and climb up ladder

                            •  boat retrieved with no one inside

                            •  boat secured
