THE NAIVE SAILOR-- MAIN AIR COMPRESSORS - CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL


On a brand new SS chemical tankers, delivered from a Japanese yard, the water drains of MACs were connected together to drain into the Engine room bilge water tank--  a closed system.


No amount of explanations to Ship Yard, Japanese Tech owners Engr superintendents-- could make them understand what I mean. 

Air is compressible, water is NOT.  MAC explosions are most severe.

Sometimes ego makes you blind-- or they could be just plain stupid.


I was constrained to make a  SMS report.

    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-

  4. HERE IS AN ADVISE TO MODI -

    A LEADER MUST KNOW HOW TO CONTROL FAKE NEGATIVE PROPAGANDA.

    TAKE THIS FROM A LEADER OF MEN , 30 YEARS AS A SHIP CAPTAIN . .

    MY FIRST 9 YEARS OF COMMAND WAS IN INDIAN SHIPPING COMPANY SCI . . .

    I GREW UP IN THE COMPANY AND I KNEW HOW THE CREW / OFFICERS PUT THE CAPTAIN ON THE BACKFOOT -- BY INSINUATING THAT HE MADE MONEY ON FOOD . . .

    TO BE FRANK, MOST OF THESE ALLEGATIONS WERE TRUE.

    COMPANY GAVE OUT A CIRCULAR TO FORM MESS COMMITTEES ON ALL SHIPS , WITH A MEETING EVERY MONTH AND A REGISTER FOR COMPLAINTS.

    IN EVERY MESS COMMITTEE MEETING CREW/ OFFICERS WOULD THROW SHIT ON THE CAPTAINs FACE -- THE COMPLAINT REGISTER WOULD BE FULL OF FOUL ABUSE , BAD LANGUAGE AND SLIMY INNUENDO.

    TO BE FRANK, WHEN YOU HAVE A CREW OF 60 IT IS DIFFICULT TO KEEP ALL HAPPY. PUNJABIS DO NOT WANT SAMBHAR, TAMILAINS DO NOT WANT PARATHA AND SO ON.

    ONE FINE DAY CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL TOOK OVER COMMAND OF A SHIP , WHERE HE WAS SECOND IN COMMAND AFTER A MONTH OF LEAVE.

    I KNEW THE TROUBLE MAKERS-- THE STAGNANT CATEGORY LIKE ELECTRICAL OFFICER/ PURSER/ CHIEF ENGINEER WHO HAD NO MORE PROMOTIONS.

    I CALLED FOR A MESS COMMITTEE MEETING IN ADVANCE ON MY TIME TABLE.

    AS USUAL THE RABBLE ROUSERS STARTED OFF --WE WANT THIS , WE WANT THAT-- WE THINK SO AND SO.

    I GOT UP FROM MY CHAIR AND TOLD LOUD AND CLEAR-

    I WANT TO HEAR I NOT WE

    I WANT TO HEAR I WANT THIS, I WANT THAT, I THING SO AND SO.

    AFTER I SIT DOWN ON THIS CHAIR AGAIN, IF I HEAR THE WORLD WE AGAIN , IT WILL GO AGAINST HIM. THERE IS NO SAFETY IN NUMBERS-- ALL ARE ON THEIR OWN STARTING FROM NOW-

    AND I BANGED MY PALM ON THE TABLE-- WITH A EAR SPLITTING THUDDDDDDDD.

    YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN EVERYBODYs FACES.

    NOBODY DARED TO UTTER A WORD .

    THEY ALL KNEW I WAS THE COMPANYs BLUE EYED BOY ...

    THEN I TOOK THE OLD COMPLAINT REGISTER -- TORE IT UP AND SUBSTITUTED THE COMPLAINT RESISTER WITH A SUGGESTION REGISTER., ADDRESSED TO CAPTAIN AJIT VADAKAYIL.

    I SAID--

    WHATEVER YOU WRITE HERE , WILL BE ADDRESSED TO ME, THE CAPTAIN --NOT THIN FUCKIN AIR.

    YOU CAN WRITE WHAT YOU WANT-- I EXPECT YOU TO LOOK AHEAD , NOT BEHIND .

    YOU HAVE TO SIGN EVERY ENTRY .

    NO ANONYMOUS ENTRY WILL BE ACCEPTED. EVERY SENTENCE WILL BE ADDRESSED TO ME ALONE.

    AND THEN I LOOKED AT THE CHIEF STEWARD AND CHIEF COOK -- I WANT GOOD FOOD. GET ORAL POSITIVE FEEDBACK DAILY FROM THE OFFICERS AND CREW. AND I WANT TO HEAR THAT DAILY . . LOOK IN THE REGISTER DAILY. I WILL SEE THE REGISTER ONLY ONCE A MONTH.

    MY SHIP NEVER HAD A PROBLEM.

    AFTER 3 MONTHS THE CHIEF STEWARD ASKED ME-- DO YOU HYPNOTISE OR DO SOME MAGIC ?

    YES-- LEADERS MUST KNOW HOW TO LEAD.

    MR NARENDRA MODI -- LEARN HOW TO BE A LEADER .

    PSSST-

    MY LEADERSHIP WAS ON A DIFFERENT TRACK - MY CREW LOVED ME WHEN I GOT ANGRY.

    I COULD MAKE PEOPLE STRIP , IF I WANTED -- THIS IS MAGIC.

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2010/11/humor-management-capt-ajit-vadakayil.html

    IN FOREIGN COMPANIES CAPTAIN COULD SACK ANYBODY WHOM HE DID NOT LIKE.

    ONLY IN INDIAN COMPANIES IT WAS FREE FOR ALL.

  5. STOP PRESS:

    SOMETIMES MY READERS WONDER HOW I GET SO MUCH OF UNKNOWN INFORMATION..

    A CHUNK OF IT CAME BY "SHAKING DOWN " PEOPLE.

    MAKE SOMEONE FEEL THAT IF HE DOES NOT CONFESS- HE WILL GO TO JAIL-- AND I HAVE THE POWER TO DO IT.

    THIS IS WHO I CAME TO KNOW SECRETS OF "INDIAN SHIP MANAGEMENT COMPANIES "

    EXAMPLE?

    ONCE I WAS PUT IN A HOTEL ROOM WITH SAME SEROUS DEFICIENCIES --SAY THE ROOM DID NOT HAVE A WINDOW

    I WOULD CALL FOR THE TOP MANAGER AND SHAKE HIM DOWN.

    BUT HEY--

    BUT I MAY RE-CONSIDER , IF HE TELLS ME HOW MUCH KICK BACK PERCENTAGE HE GIVES TO THE MANNING OFFICE WHO PUTS SHIP OFFICERS IN HIS HOTEL.

    PAT- THE ANSWER WILL COME-- 40 %

    THIS MEANS IN A HOTEL ROOM COSTING 5000 BUCKS A DAY 2000 BUCKS GOES TO THE POCKET OF OWNER/ MANAGER OF THE MANNING OFFICE.

    I HAVE SHAKEN DOWN SHIPPING ACCOUNTANTS IN FOREIGN NATIONS . NOBODY LIKES JAIL

    I HAVE COME TO KNOW OF SLIMY SHIP MAMANGEMENT INDIAN COMPANIES WHO PAY AN OFFICER 6000 DOLLARS A MONTH-- BUT THEY FORGE THE WHOLE SIGNED SHEET AGAIN ( ENTIRE CREW ) IN THE OFFICE , AND CHARGE THE JAPANESE SHIP OWNER 30% EXTRA.

    THAT MEANS IF THE ACTUAL WAGES GIVEN ARE 2 LAKHS DOLLARS PER MONTH 60,000 DOLLARS ARE SKIMMED OFF BY THE INDIAN SHIPMANAGEMENT COMPANY--WITHOUT THE CREW OR THE JAP SHIPOWNER KNOWING.

    OFFICERS AND CREW ARE MADE TO PAY FOR THE "FLAG DOCUMENTATION" SAY--PANAMA/ MONROVIA ETC SAY 800 DOLLARS-- BUT THEY COLLECT THIS MONEY FROM THE JAP OWNERS TOO--

    FLAG DOCUMENTATION-- CERTIFICATE OF COMPETENCY, CDC, SPECIAL VERTIFICATES LIKE OIL / CHEMICAL/ GAS ADVANCED COURSEs ETC

    I HAVE THE POWER TO JAIL SEVERAL HIGH FLYING MAHA MERUS WITH PROOF. I HAVE REVEALED JUST 2%.

    SOME OF THEM ARE IMMORAL SONS OF BITCHES-- THEY WILL SELL THEIR OWN MOTHERS TO WHORE HOUSES.

    WELL THEY WILL READ THIS TODAY--AND ALL WILL SHIT IN THEIR LANGOTS AND SPEND SEVERAL SLEEPLESS NIGHTS

    SOMEBODY CALLED –

    ASKED ME CAN YOU REVEAL SOME MORE ABOUT THESE BASTARDS RUNNING INDIAN SHIP MANAGEMENT COMPANIES—

    OK— TWO MORE

    AAA- MONTHLY ALLOTMENTS TO HOME BANK REACHING LATE.
    ##################################

    LET US SAY THAT I SENT 15000 USD AS MONTHLY ALLOTMENT TO MY WIFE

    IT WILL REACH MY HOME ONLY AFTER 20 DAYS

    THE FIRST 20 DAYS , THEY MILK OFF THE INTEREST ( HUGE AMOUNT FOR THE WHOLE CREW ) IN SOME BANK.

    AS A BONUS TO THESE BASTARDS I WILL NOT REVEAL THEIR FCNR / NRE MONEY CHANNELING VIA THE MAURITIUS ROUTE OR WHATEVER -- FERA - AS OF NOW


    BBB- A LOT OF COMPANIES DEMAND THE FIRST MONTHs SALARY AS BRIBE.
    ######################################

    I STOPPED THIS WHEN I CAME TO KNOW ABOUT THIS.

    EXAMPLE: I HAD A BANGLADESI OFFICER WHO HAD TO PAY HIS RECRUITING MANNING AGENT ( A SHORE CAPTAIN ) AT DHAKA , HIS FIRST MONTHs SALARY- BEFORE BOARDING THE SHIP.

    THIS MEANS YOU WORK THE FIRST MONTH WITHOUT SALARY.

    I CALLED UP THE TOP HONCHO IN DENMARK ( MY DIEHARD FAN ) AND STOPPED THIS NONSENSE , THAT VERY MINUTE.
