Normal is a Rarity
Thursday, May 18, 2023
Normal is a rarity.
We work in an Industry where normal, or routine is a Rarity. No two situations are ever exactly the same. No two watches are conducted like an assembly line job.
The conditions will always be different. The weather will be different. The River currents or lack of currents will be different. Depths of water will change and effect movements of the tow and Vessel.
With that being part of our lives, it makes it even more important to pass along, at watch change, the needed information to our reliefs to navigate and work safely and efficiently.
Has couplings changed?
Has it frosted or iced?
Are there pumps now running?
Is there rigging now on walkways that are trip hazards?
Was the current at the last lock swifter as barges were pulled?
Information is a 2 way street, make sure it travels both directions each watch change.
