Items of maintenance beyond the capabilities of the vessel’s crew and which do not adversely affect the vessel’s seaworthiness may be: –
- Rectified using local resources
- Deferred until the necessary resources are available to enable shipboard repair or; Added to the next dry-dock specification.
Maintenance deficiencies, which adversely affect a vessel’s seaworthiness, are dealt with immediately by the Technical Superintendent in close liaison with the Master and Chief Engineer
On board defects may necessitate repairs using local resources. In such case the Superintendent must be consulted first.
Whenever the Superintendent considers it necessary and practical, he attends the vessel to coordinate onboard repairs carried out by sub-contractors. In such cases, the Superintendent compiles a work order, copies of which are given to the Chief Engineer for monitoring and for the sub-contractors to follow.
When using sub-contractors, and when circumstances prevent or do not
require the attendance of a Superintendent, sub-contractor’s repair work
aboard a vessel will be controlled by either the Master or Chief
Engineer. The responsibility will depend on area or item requiring
attention and will be agreed upon by the Master in consultation (except
