  • Sea time calculation

    MGN 92

    "Sea service entered in official documents as in paragraph 3.3.1 above, will be reckoned by the calendar month, that is the time included between any given day in any month and the preceding day of the following month, both inclusive. The number of complete months from the commencement of the period, ascertained in this way, should be computed, after which the number of odd days should be counted. The day on which the crew agreement commenced, as well as that on which it terminated, should both be included, all leave of absence excluded and all odd days added together and reckoned at thirty days to the month."

    Can I take it from this that the required total amount of sea time is 360 days? I think I'll be cutting it pretty close, but that's a damn sight better than being short which I previously thought I might be!

    You really can't think of it in days. If you're at sea for a 31-day month then that's a month, not a month and a day.

      I work on ferries and the longest I spend on board is 29 days, this is where I get confused.

        In that case, my interpretation would be that all your days are odd days and you can reckon 30 days to a month, except if you do 29 day trip that starts in February, in which case you get a month at a discounted rate.

        It's a mad system.

          I really is, it would definitely make more sense to stipulate 365 days or something. Anyways thanks for your quick reply. Currently trying to work out how to fit in leave so that I don't go mad!

                It's not so much a case of safe than sorry rather than the sea phase is only 10 months long and I've got 8 months to squeeze out of it. THANK YOU CITY OF GLASGOW COLLEGE, THANKS!

                  You'll more than likely get back phased then.
