THE NAIVE SAILOR, WEATHER ROUTING -- CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL

Subject:  XXX/ WEATHER ROUTING WITHOUT A CONSCIENCE

XXX/ ajit,

i have used various weather routing services in my long command career -
- probably a hundred times --

never been satisfied even ONCE -- as a master.

never ever saved any time due to such unrequisitioned shore help.

at sea the the shortest route is rarely the fastest route.

if the curved great circle path is causing severe adverse affects on
ships passage --it is NOT worth it. why have SAFETY FIRST
stencilled on bridge front?

i get the feeling routing service is just a profitable organisation , to
help greedy charterers flog the ship in a single minded manner.

i don't get the feeling that they have a commitment to sailors lives.

if you deviate from the recommended route, because the TERRAIN DOES NOT
MATCH THE ROUTING MAP  the charterers will with hold hire and make
absurd claims , -- on vindictive advise ( vested ) from router without a
conscience .

a) in winter NORTH ATLANTIC/ PACIFIC -- XXX can NEVER do meaningful
routing -- temperate latitude depressions come in families -- one after
the other-- the whole ocean for thousands of miles is affected -- to say
that there is a calm passage through , known only to routers -- IS JUST
A LIE.

b) i have never ever seen weather routing ask master about his
constraints -- for even if master gives a big list, they don't know how
to react on it. for they don't have the technical knowledge ( say on
chemical tankers )

c) on chemical tankers with low free boards we don't like to be rimed --
all sensitive LCD equipment on weather main deck will get unstreamlined
-- one single green wave rolls over , and there is heavy damage.

d) once north of the aleutian , my ship had to go the rescue of a brand
new XXX ship-- whose foremast fell down due to getting top heavy by
rime -- the fallen mast was held by 4 stout wire stays and was battering
the ship like BRUCE LEE'S nanchaku.  our own forecastle was like a mount
everest with rime .

e) no router will ever accept liability for damage to ship due to poor
routing-- are the owners so toothless?

f) before weather routers made NORTH OF ALEUTIAN CHAIN, their
playground--  this whole area was covered under institute warranties.

g)routers don't have an idea what can happen on a RIMED parcel chemical
tanker carrying high melting point chemicals--

1) cumulative list due to failure of heating

2) framo power pack inside forepeak store-- with a mountain of ice on
top. the heart of the cargo/ ballast system is inaccessible-- in case of
list .

3) rimed and frozen under a ice mountain-- PV cargo valves stack with
high VP cargoes

4) rimed and buried air pipe heads of ballast tanks

5) heating inlet / return pipes unlagged and buried under rime.

6) area around kuril islands ( japan east coast ) having thousands of
bergy bits , each of which can damage the propeller.

7) only one boiler, with insufficient diesel oil tank capacity

on XXX right now if i were to tell XXX that we have iron ore in all 9
holds and hence , ship should not roll too much to avoid racking
stresses , on a 18 year old ship-- it will fall on deaf ears.

with the MONGOLIAN PERMANENT HIGH shifting--- due to china getting
industrialised -- the weather in north pacific is not so predictable
anymore --


thanks and best regards

gentlemen,

time charterers XXX is eager to send this to our P&I  XXX --

let me predict the result  --

WHO CARES?

WHO UNDERSTANDS?

note: at XXX-- my ex 2nd Engr  XXXX paid me a
visit at anchorage with a token gift -- we had seen VERY bad times
together like a commando unit---- he wanted to know why i give
away my intellectual rights virtually free--

WELL IT IS ABOUT GIVING BACK SOMETHING TO THE SEA --

--  IT IS A CONCEPT ---

VITAL FOR MY HAPPINESS/ HONOUR IN MY RETIRED LIFE--

I really don't care for mouse pushin' fools ashore who want to hold
on to their chairs, at the expense of sailors lives.

thanks and best regards

    Respected Captain,

    What is special about Tamil Nadu?

    How come it is able to continuously produce word geniuses like Ramanujam, Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, C.V. Raman, A.R. Rahman, Abdul Kalam, Venkatraman Ramakrishnan, Viswanathan Anand, Illayaraja, etc?

    Even till recently the Chief Justice of India, the Finance Minister, the RBI governor are all Tamils?

    Is there any scientific reason behind this? Because no other region has produced such super genius people in such numbers.

    Regards

    hi ch,

    i am sure if i were a lawyer, i will NEVER EVER become CJI.

    i am sure if i were an economist, i will NEVER EVER become finance minister.

    you want me to continue ?

    when i was on my training ship in mumbai with 250 other cadets ( two years ) -- the biggest TELUs ( oily and slimy ) and SNEAKS ( snitches ) became SCC ( senior cadet captains ) , CC ( cadet captains ) , CL ( cadet leaders ) etc.

    i used to be in the CAPTAINS MONTHLY BREAKFAST PARTY ( cadet with maximum negative marks for OFFICER LIKE QUALITIES ) -- to be chewed up for breakfast every month .

    i got an EXTRA FIRST in every subject --except OFFICER LIKE QUALITIES.

    now what are OFFICER LIKE QUALITIES-

    being a son of a bit#h, being a sneak, being a hypocrite, being a as$ kisser , being a leader who will sell out his team, being a back biter, being an informer , being the best in playing to the gallery.

    so, so--

    at the passing out parade --most of the cadets who got all PRIXES were leaders -- they all got BOOOOOEEEEED !

    I remember i got only one prize--for being the best REPORTER IN ENGLISH -- the claps I got from the entire hall still resound in my ears -- along with another ROC ( royal officer cadet -who did NOT care to become a sold out leader ).

    and mind you -- i was in every single team which made my TOP ( starboard fore top ) the champion TOP.

    i was a champion sailor, rower, signaller, marks in subjects, soccer team in both years --

    but i lacked OLQ ( officer like qualities ) of being a FU#KIN' SLIME BALL.

    so in my passing our certificate , after two years of training -- i had an EXTRA FIRST in all subjects -- except OLQ where i was third grade

    so i guess they held a special meeting and GRACED ME TO FIRST CLASS --a young 18 year old boy -- .TEE HEEE !

    AT SEA, THE SAILORS DO NOT CARE FOR YOUR FOUR STRIPES- THEY ONLY CARE FOR WHO YOU ARE--

    AT SEA PEOPLE WHO KNOW ME , OR HAVE HEARD OF ME -- OR SAILED WITH ME, WILL VOUCH--

    CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL WAS A SLAVE MORE POWERFUL THAN THE MIGHTY FU#KIN' CAESAR -- BY LIGHT YEARS .

    this has now passed on to LORE -- never ti happen again in the annals of sea .

    am i boasting ?

    -- so be it !

    humility is NOT about having a low opinion of yourselves to please the JEALOUS party.

    see, this would have been part of my post-- GAMES CAPTAIN PLAYED--

    you made me reveal it prematurely --with your TAMIL PRIDE ! TAKE IT EASY !

    check out my training ship-

    STOP PRESS:

    I AM WRITING THIS AS I PROMISED ONE OF MY READERS 45 MINUTES AGO-- HE RAN UP TO ME DURING MY MORNING WALK--

    HE WANTED TO KNOW OUT OF MY 300 PLUS SCOOPS IN MY NEARLY 845 ODD POSTS--WHICH IS NO 1 AND WHICH IS NUMBER 300.

    ############

    well let me make it clear , these 300 scoops are CONSTRUCTIVE SCOOPS .

    all these 300 scoops are in the plane of INVENTION and NOT innovation.

    none of these 300 scoops are DESTRUCTIVE -- so my posts proving that edison, newton, darwin, einstein etc are IDIOTS does not find a place in these scoops.

    so waht could be the no 1 scoop?

    it is about providing a HINT on how to make a astronaut hibernate while travelling to mars -to cut down on food and water .

    it is about keeping alive a seriously wounded soldier till he can find proper medical care.

    punch into Google search-
    HIBERNATION WITH HYDROGEN SULPHIDE GAS VADAKAYIL

    and

    FUMAROLES FOR FREE ENERGY AND HYDROGEN SULPHIDE SUICIDES IN JAPAN VADAKAYIL


    one of my russian chief engineers who lived near siberia , a place infested with HUGE bears had once woken up a bear while on hibernation in a cave ( as a child ) and he told be how furious the animal was. Before they go into months of hibernation they would kill a large animal ( bury the dead animal it in the ground ) and would NOT eat it unless it became putrid , reeking of rotten eggs..

    WELL WHAT WOULD BE NO 300 RANK.

    it is about PIN WORMS on as$hole.

    Check out the comment dated 18th Dec 2013 , about surcharging the anus with oxygen 5 times a day to prevent pinworms disrupting your REM sleep. This is a 6000 year old Ayurvedic cure for pinworm which happens when you eat non-veg heavy meats and do NOT wash your as$hole after a crap.
    Punch into Google search-
    VEDIC PRACTISES IN MECCA VADAKAYIL

    If I were a white JEW, I would have been an international celebrity. but then who cares?

    I have reached a stage where ONLY I can evaluate myself--

    one of my DUTCH bosses tried to patronise me nearly 2 decades ago -- he said he has given me a good confidential service report-

    so i told him something in Hindi -- with its translation.

    VADAKAYIL KHUD QUESTION PAPER SET KARTA HAI !

    VADAKAYIL KUD EXAM LIKTHA HAI !!

    VADAKAYIL KHUD NUMBER DETA HAI !!!

    capt ajit vadakayil sets his own exam question paper, he writes the exam , and then he gives himself the marks .

    THIS IS THE MEANING OF LIBERATION.

    believe me -- that man hugged me ( NO patronising here ) and said -- he expected such an frank retort from me .

    he said- every other captain would have said thank you .

    he was told to enter into this dialogue by the single man owner of that shipping company . this was about my " CUT THE CRAP " EMAILS -- where i would point out that the EMPEROR IS NAKED .

    99% of the people will NOT even understand the wisdom and gravity of the statement above.

  3. hi here is a minder bender. sail south and keep sailing soiuth, yopu would presumably sail far enough to start c oming up the globe and end up in the north pole , but in reality you will not, you will sail south for ever and always areound and around like the amelikan sailors wilkes and englaish cook? they sailed 60 thousand miles in 4 years and never seemed to circle qanartica, it is a quandry ya think?

    hi rm,

    PMO IS NOT INTERESTED

    IF YOU HAVE SUGGESTION FOR IMPROVING MODIs VOTE BANK--PMO WILL DROOL OVER IT.

    THIS IS WHAT MODI IS ALL ABOUT.

    WHEN I WAS AT SEA, WE HAD TO HOLD SAFETY COMMITEE MEETINGS

    THEY CREATED A SOFTWARE FORMAT AND DEMANDED THAT WE AT SEA STICK TO IT.

    I PERUSED IT AND FOUND THAT THEY WERE NOT INTERESTED IN THE FUTURE OR PRESENT.

    THEY ONLY WANTED THE PAST..LIKE "NEAR MISSES" AND "ACCIDENTS"

    THAT WAY THEIR JOBS ARE SAFE AND THEY CAN POUNCE ON THE SAILORS. IT WAS ALL ABOUT PERSONAL SELF PRESERVATION.

    MY BOSSES ASHORE NEVER CARED FOR THE SHIP OR CREW

    I REPLIED OFFICIALLY--

    ON MY SHIP , ON THE NAVIGATING BRIDGE , I TELL MY WATCH KEEPING OFFICERS TO LOOK AHEAD AND NOT BEHIND, AT THE SHIPs WAKE.

    I WILL NOT GIVE YOU WHAT YOU WANT, SO THAT YOU CAN KEEP YOUR JOBS SAFE.

    I WILL GIVE YOU "WHAT MAY HAPPEN" IF WE DO NOT DO SOMETHING MOST CRUCIAL .

    AND IF THAT HAPPENS , AND MY SHIP IS LOST OR CREW DIES OR GETS CRITICALLY INJURED , DUE TO YOUR LASSITUDE AND LACK OF COMMITMENT - I WILL SHOOT YOUR FUCKIN' BALLS OFF ( I USED SUCH LANGUAGE AT SEA )

    I WAS THE FIRST TO START "PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE " AT SEA

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2010/12/predictive-maintenance-on-chemical.html

    I WAS THE FIRST TO START "DYNAMIC" RISK ASSESSMENT AT SEA .

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2010/04/dynamic-risk-assessment-on-chemical.html

    IN ABOVE I WAS PUT PUT A CERTAINTY SWITCH OF YES- NO AT SEA

    I ASK MODI TO SACK THIS PARTICULAR MAN FROM PMO WHO SEND THE REPLY ABOVE ! IF YOU WANT I CAN GIVE HIS NAME . .

    PMO IS FILLED WITH PEOPLE "BEDDED DOWN TO HAPPY RETIREMENT AND PENSION"

    MR MODI, I KNOW YOU WILL READ THIS WITH YOUR OWN EYES.

      hi rm,

      WHAT IS THE SUBJECT PMO HAS WASHED THEIR HANDS OFF-

      A MOST IMPORTANT TOPIC, FOR THE FORTUNES OF BHARATMATA .

      IF WE DONT ADDRESS IN A RUSH RUSH RUSH MANNER BEFORE 22ND APRIL 2016, INDIA WILL GO DOWN, CHEATED BY THE WHITE MAN . .

      http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2016/04/most-potent-greenhouse-gases-nitrous.html

      WHEN HAS PMO EVER SERVED THE NATION ?

      MO MATHAI WAS A SPY FOR CIA-- HE SERVED WITH US ARMY.

      I KNOW THE PRESENT LOT.

      ALL IN GOOD TIME

    INDIA MUST DEVELOP OWN TECHNOLOGY-- THE ABOVE TORPEDO IS TOO SLOW.

    ZIONIST JEW FOREIGN TECHNOLOGY WILL NOT BE GIVEN , WITHOUT A KILL SWITCH

    IT WILL TAKE ANOTHER 600 YEARS FOR MAN TO RECREATE A VEDIC VIMANA POWERED BY IMPLODING AND EXPLODING VORTEX . .

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/09/vedic-vimanas-gyroscopic-mercury-vortex.html

    IRAN AND RUSSIA HAVE FAST TORPEDOES ( 375 KM PER HOUR ) -- THIS IS WHY NATO WILL NOT TAKE ON THESE TWO NATIONS --JUST LIKE THAT.

    NATO SUBMARINES ARE FARTING AROUND THE IRANIAN COAST--THEY DO NOT EVEN KNOW THE DANGERS.


    INDIA MUST USE OWN TECHNOLGY TO CREATE A SUPER CAVITATING TORPEDO CAPABALE OF DOING 500 KM /HR.

    SUPERCAVITATION uses a gas bubble, which envelops the torpedo. It is created by outward deflection of water by its specially-shaped nose cone and the expansion of gases from its engine. This minimizes water contact with the torpedo, reducing drag.

    I remember I once SURFED my ship in a storm in the freezing Bering sea —and my company kept twisted my arm to reveal the trick . I did not—it can be done only by SUPER competent captains- or the ship will sink.

    SUBMARINE ARM OF INDIAN NAVY MUST BE EXPERTS IN SUPER CAVITATION AND SOLITON WAVES .
