I don't think we have a dedicated thread for deck orals resources, so I'll start one here with a few things in it, and if one already exists i'll add my stuff to that
Notice to mariners, Weely, Cummuliative and annual can be found here:
MSN 1781- Colregs, I assume everyone has a copy of these anyway, but I like the MCA one as you know it's 100% reliable, and has the advantage of Ctl+F that a text book doesn't! http://www.dft.gov.uk/mca/msn_1781-2.pdf
MSN 1676 The Merchant Shipping (Life-Saving Appliances for Ships Other Than Ships of Classes III to VI(A)) Regulations 1999 AND The Merchant Shipping (Life-Saving Appliances for Passenger Ships of Classes III to VI(A)) Regulations 1999
MCA Statutory Publications- Has some good SOLAS stuff.
MARPOL- The names and a brief look at the annexes, Also goes into details somewhere else on the site- Other conventions also listed.
Code of Safe. Working Practices for. Merchant Seamen- Safety bible, I was told at college 70% of your oral exam can be found in this book
Lights and shapes
Anything you read from a website which doesn't come from an official source (IMO, MCA etc) I would learn, but clarify it with the official source to be on the safe side
I'll add more as I think of them, also, if anyone wants a copy of my, or any of my classmates orals reports (especially useful for Tyne Dock orals) Send me a PM and we'll work out a way of sending them accross.
