Thanks, I think you missed my point what is the difference between taking your shinny new multi classed OSV on a nun doing shelf work or moving containers it’s basically the same operation but requires twice the manning. It’s BS legislation, manning requirements don’t change the scope of work does but vessel requirements don’t . Two in the engine room for shelf work and three licenses and one qmed for everything else is what i’m not following one would think the scope of work is grater doing shelf work whereas running cargo is less demanding no mud ect this is what i’m not following.
It’s my hope vessel owners follow best practice manning and don’t send a vessel on a job with 2,2,2 for 24hr operations on the shelf where you could easily spend 24hrs along side an asset but how present COI’s are written there is no guarantee. Good judgement goes out the window when it comes to money.
