whict its not ...?...i said few things he wasnt satisfied ..n started giving lecture state archemides principle .... state the laws of flotation ..... wat r type of bulkhead annex 6 in its regulation for nox n sox pollutions asked me the regulation for tankers i said him a few ..then he started asking abt the discharge criteria .....n i said him abt it tooo ..then he asked weather there is any instantaneous discharge rate for engine room bilge .....(i said no ) wat r all things do u enter in orb regarding bilge discharge how many orb r there who all signs orb .... Fn 4b tappet clearance how to take n hy its taken boiler water gauge glass showing diffrent level in both the gauge glass what u'll do ....he said not to trust any electronic equipment ..so i said i'll blow through n he was ok with it ......... crankcase inspection all the points frm safty perspective n started giving lecture again as i was not not answering properly ........ Fn 5 whats the principle of working oftransformer ....from basic ..wasnt satisfied with just mutual indiction....so had to explain it to him principle of generator working ,,,n explain it to him various trips in it ... what are the various volatages onboard n its application working of synchronoscope n dark lamp method explain n what u'll chk for all the desired parameters reverse power trip nwhat would happen if this trip doesnt work equation of voltage produced across generator fn 6 principle of centrifugal pump working scavenge fire has taken place...what parametrs will notify u abt it thats all i remember ...most of the time he was scolding me insulting ....but gave function 5 Astro Jaya Roger 06/05/2013 Gopi & - Choudray Appeared for Fn 3, 4B & 6 Very First Question What Proof Do u carry and Do u have PASSPORT or CDC With You? And the he started askiong me whats ur surname , name of college , which course i did etc ..he was cross checking with form 15 & Extn 45 Fn 3 #Started with Annex V what are the new regulations ?? #ISPS Security Levels .. and lot of cross qstns in that almost covered the whole code. #Water Ingress System Regulations #Bulbous Bow.. What is its functions #Freeboard why it is Less For tankers (He was expecting for the permeability ) nd Cross Questions in that #Components of DCP Extinguisher .. And he asked me the weight of the co2 catridge and when do u replace it ?? Fn4 #Crankcase Inspection What all will u do ??

#Excessive Consumption of Lube Oil in A/E what are the reasons?? #How Does the Power is transmitted in a Purifier ?? When a Purifier Starts it takes High current and Drops down whats the reason ?? and if it continues to indicate high current what all are the possible causes #Central Cooling System ?? Advantages and cross Questions in that Fn6 #Expansion Tank bubbling Reasons ?? What will happen when the engine stops?? #Tappet Clearance How do you measure .. lots of cross questions and asked me to draw a diagram of the entire arrangement #FWG Working.. and all of a sudden vaccum drops and what will be ur action #Boiler Blowdown Procedure?? Why Do u open the sea side valve first #Oil Is found in the hotwell how Do you isolate the Leak and what actions are to be taken.. oil Carried over to boiler what will happen ?? Thats All i remember Guys I will Post the rest as soon as i recollect ... Very Good Surveyors .. the questions were not that tough RESULT : Fn 3 & 6
