  • An example of Bad watch-keeping...

    It was a while ago now, but at Plymouth University we had to do presentations on certain operational procedures.

    We all usually bump it up a level to gain extra marks, so here is a video we made up of a BAD watch keeping example in our new simulator...

      I've always wondered what you deckies get up to whilst we engineers are slaving away in the workshop. Now I know!

      In all seriousness good movie. That simulator looks amazing, though I don't like the idea of not physically moving while the ship rolls like that. Yous must get a few folk blowing chunks?

        Thank you! Yeah, we have had people feeling that way...

          Ha like it - was there actually glass in the windows of the simulator? - I just remember a course in Amsterdam where one of our Staff Captains leaned against the window - which wasn't there and fell out of the bridge - then had to climb back in... was quite funny...

            Haha, no there is no glass - seen a number of people trying to touch the window which isn't there - very amusing.

                Excellent, well done. I think I have seen almost all of those examples in real life over the years.
