Usually that is often required in locks as the radars are often in the same height as the traffic control towers and as radars emitting electronic pulses the people working in those towers could become affected by it. Panama Canal has the same and as far as I know the locks in Antwerp too and most probably a lot more.

Well Frederico,, SAR and such do not have much to do with Port State Control issues.
I was not in spanish ports for a whole while but according conversations between me and two others Masters of our fleet who were in Spain, the main tenor was, that they search until they find something. Of course one can say that the way it has to be, but running a ship is 10000 things to think of and the regulations are changing
quicker then they can be announced in these days were ships switching from standard navigation to paperless navigation systems for all ships withhin the next 2 years. I do not say that they should go too easy on ships, but personally I had a problem on a ship, where life rings were stored inside in order that they are not stolen in ports, and the PSC in that port wanted to make out of that a major deficiency.
A in port inside stored embarkation ladder for the forward life raft was also listed at that time as a major defie !!!   I know personally from another ship that a stolen cap (copper) of the fireline was also written down as major defie. It looks sometimes the PSC think, they have to find and write down something as they are otherwise not doing a good job. But I agree fully with you a good PSC system should exist world wide.

Not sure if it is really like that,,but heard that the spanish government does not have anything in their budget for PSC and the PSC people have to finance their salaries through fines imposed on vessels calling spanish ports. That could be a reason for their bad names.

Indeed a good article.
Looking at how it all started (choosing the route and what possible influenced the decision from the Masters side) and what then all happened during the trip, the seemingly none consideration of weather information or at least applying the information timely is kind of fascinating to me. What struck me most, that neither the officers on the bridge nor the Master at any time really were aware what track the hurricane took and reacted accordingly.

Usually Port Authorities circulate implemented regulations to all parties concerned which of course should include all shipping agencies registered at the port. Port agents should then advise the ships accordingly.

Low-Sulphur is usually meant when asked by a ship if they can keep operate their main engine and auxillary engines on HFO or must switch to MGO/MDO with a low sulphur content while operating in the port limits.

When I see the pictures, They can be glad that the accommodation is that far fwd as it seems that they stopped the fire to the aft which would possibly have engulfed the whole ship considering what happened at the foreship where was nothing spared by the fire.

Well Robbie, Did not know that when someone says not interested to go back there that one must also work for a bad company. May be exactly that attitude is the reason why !!!

Thanks god no Australia with a ship anymore for me, if a ship goes there that is almost a reason to sign off nowadays.
