  • Missing signatures

    I left my last ship in a massive rush and now that I'm back on land I'm missing signatures for my sea service record. I have the signed stamped testimonials but I somehow neglected to put them into the table. To put it bluntly, how much **** am I in.

    A lot - although how much I don't know as I am not the MCA - but I would guess they would frown upon it.

    Scan in the page from the TRB and email it to the ship with a very apologetic message highlighting how much of an idiot you were and asking them to kindly sign the relevant boxes (and enter their certificate details if you didn't already fill that bit in) and post it back to you.

    Your training manager will be able to get you the email address for the ship (if you don't already have it) or provide you with a means of posting a copy to the ship. It's obviously important to do it ASAP before everyone scatters off the ship!

    I did the same thing with one of our captains, we left our books with him a week before he left to sign... he left giving us the books back that morning and we didn't notice he hadn't signed the specimen page. Luckily he also worked in the office so we just photocopied the page and sent it with a letter to the office asking him to kindly sign it and post it back.

      I've emailed my training manager explaining my idiocy. Although it being past office hours now I won't hear until Monday. I know my DTSO is still on that ship until October at the earliest.

        as a point the sea service record is there to provide a record for the chief engineer to use to generate the testimonial, so if the testimonial is complete it should be fine, depending on who your managed by it might be worth asking them aswell, they see a lot of TRb's and will know whats truely essential
        you can take it with a pinch of salt, but i prefer it with a nip of whisky
