Example text

The cargo log and personal notebooks should always be retained, as they will be required as evidence in the event of a dispute and will carry more weight than a document which has been written up after the event. Cargo documents: Copies of all cargo documents given to the ship, or presented for signature, should be retained. ) Damage records—damage to ship or cargo: It is vital that full records are kept of damage which occurs to ship or to cargo during loading or discharge. Some owners and charterers provide well designed 'stevedore damage' forms for such records but others are less suitable and a badly designed form may fail to provide all the necessary information, even when each space contains an entry.

It can also be a useful for identifying items to be included in a planned maintenance scheme for the ship. Capacity plan: The capacity plan (Fig. 2) is designed to provide all the basic information necessary to plan and supervise the loading, carrying and discharge of cargo. It normally includes a side elevation of the ship, and plan views taken at upper deck and at tanktop level, and often transverse cross-sections in way of each cargo hold. Dimensions of holds and hatches are usually stated, as are maximum permitted tanktop, deck and hatchtop loadings, though for Regina Oldendorff this information is provided elsewhere.

The capacity and position of centre of gravity of every tank aboard the ship also appears on the capacity plan. The tonnages of the contents of the tank when filled, and when 97 per cent filled, with the intended liquid are often stated too, and the specific gravities (SGs) used for ballast water, fresh water, heavy oil, diesel oil and lubricating oil are quoted. These tonnages are sufficiently accurate for approximate calculations, but must be recalculated using the actual SGs and volumes when exact deadweight calculations are being carried out.
