THE NAIVE SAILOR, CARGO OVERHEATING - CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL


THE NAIVE SAILOR,  CARGO OVER HEATING-  CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL


Here is a real message which i sent to my company bosses.

Glean from it.

Subject: XXXX/ V6/ XX CARGO OVER HEATING


 gentlemen,

long email— for the cerebral variety only --

 I am reminded of a situation on XXX where the XXX chief officer OVER HEATED the palm oils –and then all were in a tizzy-- forcing them to consult me at home while on leave.


of course the moment the cargo is over heated the consignees put a mafia claim for THERMAL destruction of cargo. 

 this is why we have to be careful about MARPOL rules for category Y cargoes and QUALITY requirements . 

many consignees would rather pay for a PRE-WASH than have cargo destruction. this problem rose due to the change of IBC rules on 31st dec 2006.

the errant chief officer, solved the problem by CRIMINALLY fiddling around with temperature calibration screws.

 if you know proper chemical procedures there is NO need to do all this.

if you take cold ballast interface to cool down palm oils  –you get a INSULATED CHEESE LAYER on the side bulkheads and bottom —which will NOT come off.  rather this white layer stops any more cooling.


the best way is to use the steam coils .  a SS coil which can heat can also cool. you put steam it heats –you put cold water it cools.


of course there will soon be a cheese layer on the tube surface too.  but this layer can be melted off by putting steam for 2 minutes , regularly.


if the chief officer is careful, such a scenario will never happen.  but then sometimes a small tank adjacent to a HIGH HEAT LARGE TANK can get heated even if you don’t want it.
  
now I have to digress—

I wonder when our marine world will get some intelligence.   the lack of intelligence is just revolting .

fools are ruled by fools.  
so our ratguards fall off , our conrods break, we have a different fire triangle for boiler furnace and main engine crank case – this list goes on.

we have fresh water generation systems , which do NOT allow the master to slow down his engines.  for if he slows down the engine heat reduces and then the fresh water generation falls.


so what is fresh water generation?


chief engineer channels the salt water via the main engine and gets it heated .  he then puts this salt water in a vacuum chamber , and then it flashes it into vapor.  this vapor is condensed and we drink this water merrily.  by the time this FWG water gets condensed the SECOND TIME in the steam return lines , the chlorides are zilch.


yet we have chemical operators asking for DI WATER and DEMI WATER—with zilch understanding of what this means.


SO WHAT PREVENTS THIS MARINE WORLD FROM HAVING A STEAM PIPE CONNECTED JUST BEFORE THE VACUUM CHAMBER. WHY MAIN ENGINE HEAT AND JACKET COOLING TEMPERATURES?  WHY NOT FREE STEAM FROM THE ECONOMISER TO HEAT THE SEA WATER ?


getting back—


with entire europe getting frozen, the GLOBAL WARMING propaganda party are still at it. – yes— the same party who warned us that mumbai will sink in another 20 years, and maldives will be wiped off the earth. 


so that vested interests can collect carbon tax.


so that vested interests can make NOx disappear by punching their approved numbers on EXTRA costly kosher spare parts.

 you must punch into google search THE LIE OF GREENHOUSE GASES CAUSING GLOBAL WARMING- VADAKAYIL again.

NO BODY UNDERSTANDS THE DANGERS OF FEEDING <0.1% AUTO GAS OIL INTO BOILERS WITHOUT COOLERS AND SPECIAL NOZZLES.  ALL ACCIDENTS AND BOILER FURNACE POOFS AND FLASH BACKS ARE HUSHED UP.


we plod on—


by the way, when I came here all were complaining about RED WATER . 

on japanese economy ships they DELIBERATELY fit poor grade fresh water lines, along with hard beds/ pillow, disgraceful green painted floor (even in master’s cabin) etc. 


so as long as FWG water runs in the pipelines we get to drink clear water.  by sometimes greedy charters want to make an extra dollar by carrying 40 tons more of low freight cargo for the loadlines , and ship is ARM TWISTED to take water from ashore at disport.

 FWG water contains NIL oxygen—and a fish put in it will die in a couple of minutes.  shore water contains oxygen and hence the rust or RED WATER from steel freshwater pipelines.


so sailors continue drinking RED WATER. 


when such charterers visit my ship— I give them red water to drink—and I make sure they drink it— or NO business talks .


thanks and best regards

Nowadays you get lot of reverse osmosis purifiers in the market. Make sure they have a built in mineraliser or I would advise you not to buy it.
If you have understood the reverse osmosis theory, i wont have to do any more explaining.

There is something called osmotic shock. 

If you drink RO water or even ionised water ( DI water or even distileld water ) , the absence of salt in it makes this movement occur VERY fast, as the body starts to try to reach equilibrium. The salt movement is a bit too fast and has so much force behind it that the cell walls basically explode from the shock, which of course kills the cells.  

Kill too many of the 100 trillion you have -- you can get internal bleeding.  
I have seen my Polish Chief Engineer actually buckle down from this.

See the video below.



On ships where you have fresh water generators from flash evaporation , it is desirable to fit a mineraliser ( Dolomite ).

When MLC 2006 kicks in, make sure you get it.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    HEARING KIRAN BEDI ON TV, BOASTING ABOUT HERSELF IS INSUFFERABLE.

    YAP YAP YAP YAP--

    I AM THIS , I AM THAT, THIS IS MY VISION- BLAH BLAH-

    SHE HAS PICKED UP SOME MANAGEMENT MANTRAS FROM CHEAP MANAGEMENT BOOKS YOU SEE ON THE FOOTPATH-- BLAH BLAH

    I CANT IMAGINE A PRINCE CHARLES OR A INDIRA GANDHI OR A MODI OR A JAITLEY OR WHOEVER TALKING THIS RIDICULOUS WAY.

    JUST NOW SHE WAS BOASTING ABOUT 40 YEARS OF HER ADMINISTRATIVE EXPERIENCE-

    MADAME BEDI-- JUST SHUT UP-

    YOU DID 40 YEARS OF POLICING -- TEE HEEEEEEE !!

    ON A SHIP ONCE WE LEAVE THE LAND , ANY PROBLEM COMES UP, AS A SHIP CAPTAIN I HAVE TEAM UNDER ME - THEY ARE TRAINED TO HANDLE IT-

    BUT WHEN THEY FAIL-- THE BUCK STOPS ON THE CAPTAINS TABLE--

    I CANNOT SAY-- THIS IS NOT MY JOB--

    I HAVE NEVER EVER FAILED TO RESPOND TO ANY SUCH SITUATION--

    JACK OF ALL TRADES-- PEOPLE WHO SAILED WITH ME WILL CLAIM-- CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL WAS A MASTER OF ALL TRADES.

    LEAVE ALONE NUCLEAR SCIENCE AND MISSILES -- I DID EVERYTHING AS PART OF MY JOB--

    I REMEMBER ONE I MADE A GANTRY CRANE JOYSTICK HYDRAULIC BLOCK BY MELTING A FEW METALS AND DRILLING HOLES -- HANDS BELONG TO MY OFFICERS AND CREW ---BRAIN IS MINE --

    I SPIT ON THIS EXTREMELY VAIN AND LOUD WOMAN ( SOUNDS LIKE DRAGGING IRON ON CONCRETE ) , WHO PASSES OFF HER POLICING EXPERIENCE AS ADMINISTRATIVE EXPERIENCE.


    changing coats constantly, as the situation on board deemed


    judge, doctor, policeman, accountant, pest control, cook


    journalist , plumber, head shrink, soldier ( without license to kill )


    businessman --you name it--he does it as part of his job


    round the clock, not 9 to 5 -- day after day, without holiday

    IF AS A CAPTAIN I WAS INDEED WEARING THE POLICEMANs CAP --

    --SUDDENLY I WOULD HAVE TO CHANGE IT TO MECHANICAL ENGINEERS CAP, AS MY SHIPS BOILERS WENT PHUT AND MY ENGINEERS FAILED TO START IT---

    IN ANOTHER ONE HOUR IF MY BOILERS DO NOT COME BACK ON LINE , MY HIGH MELTING CARGO INSIDE THE SHIPS TANKS WILL FREEZE AND SHIP WILL TILT OVER AND SINK.
