I am scheduled to go with my vsl to dry dock in next 3 months from now.
The vsl is container ship - with 6500 TEU capacity. 2 years old.
I could use few tips about dry dock for reminder.
- How to prepare dry dock job list - the jobs for crew and yard staff.
- Preparation before dry docking and entering the dock,
- Economical approach and handling of dry docking for shipmaster if any.
- Stability calculation for dry docking, and how to find the quantity of cargo allowed on vsl when entering dry dock
- Any other experience.
I now above is very wide subject, I need for refreshment and if you have any links to download from web, or anything from your experience would be much welcome.
I am not the engineer, and especially tips from engineering side would be much appreciated, but nautical points as well.
I have rookie superintendant in the office (zero experience), and freshly promoted chief engineer on board (getting lost) - Lucky me!
