  • Orals resources

    Hey,

    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:
    http://www.ukho.gov.uk/ProductsandSe.../NMPublic.aspx

    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

    http://www.dft.gov.uk/mca/mcga-mnoti...228EC6C52#s2p4

    MCA Statutory Publications- Has some good SOLAS stuff.

    http://www.dft.gov.uk/mca/mcga07-hom...mcga-spubs.htm

    MARPOL- The names and a brief look at the annexes, Also goes into details somewhere else on the site- Other conventions also listed.

    http://www.imo.org/About/Conventions...-(MARPOL).aspx

    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

    http://www.dft.gov.uk/mca/coswp2010.pdf

    Radar plotting

    http://www.seamanshiptutor.com/rp/rp.html

    Buoyage test

    http://www.colreg.net/buoysquestions.htm

    Lights and shapes

    http://portfolio.wuthering-heights.c...rpcslights.htm

    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.

      Really? I thought the 2001 amendments were the most up to date, what are the new amendments, any links to them?

                    Yeah a really good lecturer at GCNS has made the website, still under development so it's always good to check it now and then for updates. I found it incredibly useful for my OOW. Take it you'll be doing your Masters orals in Liverpool?

                        That is correct and with small children its hard to attend a full time course. BTW how do you get full access to this Manila2010 site, do you have to pay or be a student of this college, as you said, I am finding it really helpful for Master B/L, no nonsense and to the point answers.

                          That is actually the full site at the moment I believe. Think he might be planning to password protect it in future but currently I don't think the "full access" bit is live.

                            Yip I believe you are correct...I think once he feels the website is fully functioning it will be restricted to GCNS students. Regardless it's still a great resource :-)

                              Sdot, Say thanks to this Manila guy on my behalf, feeling really confident after his Rules and Legal stuff. Does anyone know where to find Liverpool past papers online, Manila2010 seems to support just Scots
