1  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: Maritime connector / Trump executive order on: March 09, 2017, 10:28:44 pm
@ Pieter,,but not as sailor,, every sailor entering the US has to have two visas,,D visa for entering the US with a vessel and a C1 visa if joining a vessel in the US.
If for example you come as German tourist , you do not need a visa anymore (years back you needed a B1-B2)
However, if you come to the US as GERMAN sailor and want to join a vessel you need the C1/D.
It is paradox,as German I can fly to Miami, make 3 weeks vacation and go home,,no visa,, If I am the very
same person who needs or wants to join a ship I need the C1-D

Again,,every sailor,,never mind which nation needs a C1-D visa otherise they will not be allowed to enter the
US by plane and go on to the ship, or when they come with a ship,they ill not be permitted to enter the country and will be detained on the vessel.

Call the american embassy and ask them

The below is misleading.

It states that sailors from those countries listed and arrive with no visas are not able to enter the country. This is normal and regular praxis as NO sailor NEVER mind from which country can not enter the country without a valid visa. Normal they are detained on the ship, i.e. can not go ashore, but can freely move on the ship, but the vessel itself will be put under guard ,usually two people. But that is also done when a German/UK or any other country sailor does not have a visa !!!!

They should get at least their facts straight before posting !!!!

Trump’s new executive order gives headaches to seafarers

Crew members who are nationals from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen shall be denied entry to US ports unless they hold a valid visa, according to the new executive order issued by US President Trump.

The new executive order “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States” was issued on 6 March 2017 and it revokes and replaces the previously suspended EO on the subject.

The new EO directs that entry into the US for nationals from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen shall be suspended for 90 days from 16 March 2017, whilst a worldwide review is carried out by the US Secretary of Homeland Security.

“If a vessel arrives at a U.S. port with crew from any of the six designated countries who do not have valid visas, those crew members will not be permitted to leave the vessel and it can be anticipated that the U.S. authorities may well order that armed guards be placed at the vessel’s gangway to prevent any such crew from departing the vessel,” US law firm Freehill Hogan & Mahar LLP said.

“In addition, if any crew member’s visa expires after March 16, the crew member must apply for a new visa.”

The new executive order follows the repeal of Trump’s previous order issued on January 27, 2017, that banned for 90 days any immigrant or nonimmigrant entry into the U.S. of foreign citizens from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, and would have impacted vessels with crew members from those countries.

However, that E.O. was suspended by a Federal district court judge on February 3rd and his ruling was upheld by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on February 9th.

I did not look it up timewise, but slowing down for a while and making a circle can also be simple a man over board manoeuvre in conjunction before or after with manual steering from the rudder engine room.

@ Lappino
As we have chinese and EU / Japanese/
Korean build ships in the fleet, Chinese ships usually are qualitywise not as good the others. If a chinese ship does not get proper maintenance she is done in 2-3 years a european lasts longer when neglected. Another problem with chinese ships is the eletrical wiring, a lot of problems with that and it has to be replaced often already right after they are builded. Another thing, to KEEP a chinese ship in good shape takes more work and materials as the steel used is not as good as it seems the european builders using, might be however also have to do with how the steel is treated initially.

hi Simon
Could be, not sure though, that house was already hit a few times. I remember when I passed sometime in 2000
we were so close one hought it crashed any moment, but the pilot assured us,,all ok,,and it was. This angle and the size of the vessel possibly implies that it is much closer as it was in reality.
Would be not surprised when nothing really unusual happened beside that it looked really close

I am not 100% sure, but when transiting North bound through the Bosporus when at the same time
two-way traffic exist one comes extreme close to the land and it looks virtually that the vessel crashes into land but in reality just passes that close. This seems to be that exact spot. There existing pictures from
that corner (cant, remember the name of the turn) where a house is damaged where a ship did not manage the
turn and crashed.

I know of a case a tech tried for 2-3 days to xplain per telefon and email a crew that ha a auto reduce situation on a main engine. Finally they diverted the ship to Mauritius, the Tech flew down,,came aboard,,flipped a switch and went flew home,,total time with filling papers in 45 min on he ship. !!!!
company lost 3 days and flew out of the charter 2 month later ,,and all happened after the W-EU CE was taken off and the W-EU elctrician too because of too expensive.,, Nothing new on such matters,, but initial only the lower numbers are seen never the long term effect until it makes boom and then it is wanted for free when possible.
