THE NAIVE SAILOR, FIRE FIGHTING -- CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL


I have yet to see sailors reacting properly to fire at sea. Most abandon ships and deaths / injuries at sea are due to poor training.

If you understand the fire triangle of OXYGEN--HEAT--FUEL-- it is not so difficult.

First of all , it must be understood that fire requires oxygen. It must be remembered that fire fighters also require oxygen--and light too.

It is stupidity to kill all ventilation and lights enmasse . It must be done selectively whether the Master's cabin is on fire of the Galley is on fire.

Say if a galley is on fire, it is so easy to put off the electrical juice from a tripping switch in the switchbox situated well outside. It is also easy to cut off ventilation into the galley selectively.

If lights and airconditioning is killed enmasse, then the entire onus of firefighting falls on 2 nervous sailors who are ill trained for the job.  When the duo gives up, well the next solution is -- abandon ship.

All this one pull on rope for slack , three pulls to get out etc is all bullshit.

Communications are vital.

The sailor must have a walkie talkie inside his fireman's outfit, with the mouthpiece on his collar, so that he can press it against his throat and speak ( his face is covered by the SCBA mask). He can speak every clearly this way in a very noisy background too. It is important for feedback and command to be on a 2 way lane.

Again the fire fighters in firemans outfit and SCBA sets must wear the mask only at the last possible moment. Because the SCBA set contains only 1600 litres of free air, and a hyperventilating sailor can consume the entire thing in 20 minutes flat.  Only tankers have SCBA compressors. A sailor going for a tete e tete, does not don the condom in his cabin and walk down the gangway ashore , with the rubber on his wee willie winkie.  He wears it at the last possible moment, when the girl is ready and he is ready too.

The 6 faces of the compartment on fire heats up as follows-- top face in seconds, side faces in minutes and bottom face in hours.

So it is most important to remove all combustibles from top face and cool it  from outside by flooding a few inches or whatever.

Most engine fires are best attacked by removing the oxygen leg. Say an economiser fire-- cut off the turbocharger suction air inlet inside the engine room, and also the top end at the funnel . After that all you need is to keep the boiler water circ pump running and have some patience, The fire gets killed in seconds. No fire can burn without oxygen.

When the fire detector sensor lights up on the bridge it is important to ping the first light with a magnet. For within minutes all smoke detector sensors will light up.

A fine spray of water can put out most fires except a electrical fire--if the oxygen leg job does NOT work .

To a well trained crew a fire on board is a piece of cake--he will NOT be scared of it.  Knowledge and good communications with walkie talkie is the key ( not a stupid rope pull )

Does a sailor get scared of a fire on his home kitchen stove?


Here is an actual email I sent to my company --


A05768  Sun, 21 Dec XXX 07:13
From: XXXXX - Master

Date: Sunday, December 21, XXX 7:09 AM Msg: A05768-66635
Path: XXXX - MASTER\ SENTBOX

gentlemen,

attached pl find the SMS report filed.

fire fighters require light and oxygen.

if the lights and air are put off enmasse ( not SELECTIVELY
by a sensible roving squad )--

then, the onus of putting off the fire comes on 2 nos ill prepared, ill
educated and frightened scba plus fireman's outfit party.

and if these 2 poor souls are NOT communicating with each other or with
outside supervisors --the fire goes out of control. most of the time
they just hide in a safe place and come out, having done NOTHING!!!!

signals like life line pulling once , thrice etc were made in the 20th
century days of fireman's outfit with limited air line length--they has
to enter from a suitable external door, as some other soul is pumping
the bellow with his leg. and the wearer has to hold the line in one
hand--sensing the pull with his 5th sense of touch.

in the 21st century--scba party enters in pairs-- through a door of
their choice--they must be in touch with each other and the external
supervisors/ decision makers-- they exit from a door of their choice---

-- BOTH MUST HAVE A WALKIE TALKIE INSIDE THEIR FIREMANS OUTFITS WITH THE 
MOUTH PIECE POSITIONED MIDWAY BEWEEN THE MOUTH AND EAR-- WHEN THEY TALK 
THEY TWIST THEIR NECK TO ONE SIDE AND PRESS THE MIKE ON THE THROAT, TO 
SPEAK--AS THEIR FACE IS COCCOONED INSIDE THE FACE MASK. THEY EVEN HAVE 
TO REPORT THEIR AIR PRESSURES IF ASKED FOR. THEY CAN BE HEARD CLEARLY 
NEXT TO EXTREME MACHINERY NOISE. 

--they use one finger to press the PTT button only when required--both
hands are free--nothing is held, the hand pull the life line only to
move forward .

the idea of sending 2 wearers in tandem is to help each other while
escaping, and only one goes to the danger zone , the other remains in a
relatively safe place --or to help an unconscious victim out together --

--no door can be locked from outside-- all ISPS door seals if any, MUST
be removed by a chosen person, as soon as he is head counted at the emg
HQ muster station--

the mouth piece required a hook on the boiler suit to hang!

very rarely sailors die burnt--they always get asphyxiated.

experts with limited salt spray on their lips -- holding a mouse behind
a desk in IMO , can NEVER EVER IMAGINE all these issues!--

-- so ships continue to suffer--sailors continue to lose lives--

--all for a horse shoe nail!! ( read that as a small strap between the
ear and mouth on the boiler suit )

    1. hi harshal,

      i have taken a decision NOT to take such questions-- from candidates sitting for exams.

      it can be too exhausting , i will get indundated , and i am a busy man.

      BROADLY--

      co2 room safety basically gas is heavier than air, and you need to have bottom exhaust. nobody can enter without this fan running.

      the people in the room should be able to exit at any time. as a precaution have a SCBA set outside the room

      only authorised persons who are familiarised and trained can enter the room.

      when you do any maintenance or blowing trough-- the system is NOT available, and hence you have to fill up a company permit as per your SMS. CEO must be involved, personally.

      blowing through lines is done at sea, with compressed air.

      this means it must be 100% sure that co2 is not released into the spaces it protects. this is achieved by disconnecting a small length and putting an approved blank.

      after blowing through operations are over, the system must be put back into operation and CEO must inspect and sign the SMS form.

      pipelines are pressure tested to 1.5 times it working pressure -- one length at a time.

      this is part of PMS.

    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-

    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.

    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.

    hi n,

    WE DO NOT HAVE FOREST FIRE FIGHTING COMPETENCE IN INDIA

    OUR FIREMEN ARE POORLY TRAINED

    FIRE TRIANGLE IS - HEAT/ FUEL/ OXYGEN

    KNOCK OFF ONE LEG AND THE FIRE IS OUT

    WHEN HUGE DRY FORESTS CATCH FIRE

    YOU CANNOT KNOCK OFF THE OXYGEN

    YOU CANNOT KNOCK OFF THE HEAT

    BUT YOU CAN KNOCK OFF THE FUEL ( TREES AND DRY SHRUBS )

    The ONLY and fastest way to fight a fire is to do a controlled burn around the perimeter of a forest fire.

    A controlled burn will allow you to cut off the fuel source of the larger fire by already burning off the dry plants, thus stopping the spread of the fire.

    NOTE: embers fly with wind -- the wind may carry smoldering embers that can move the fire and exacerbate the problem.

    AN INTELLIGENT MAN ( NOT A HALF WIT ) MUST BE IN CHARGE

    DYNAMIC RISK ASSESSMENT MUST BE DONE AND RECORDED.

    I HAVE PREDICTED SEVERAL MAJOR DISASTERS AT SEA-- AND INCLUDED IT IN THE SHIPS SAFETY COMMITTEE REPORT WELL IN ADVANCE.

    ALL OF IT CAME TRUE

    AS A CAPTAIN I COULD NOT GO TO ENGINE ROOM TO SABOTAGE , RIGHT?

    LET ME REMEMBER THE LAST ONE ABOUT A BOILER

    I RAISED THE ISSUE IN THE SHIPs SAFETY COMMITEE MEETING --AND THE STUPID SARDARJEE CHIEF ENGINEER STARTED FIGHTING WITH ME-- HE SAID MY FEARS ARE UNFOUNDED

    BASICALLY HE WAS TRYING TO KEEP HIS OWN CHAIR SAFE— AND HE DID NOT EVEN UNDERSTAND BASICS .

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

    I JOINED THE SHIP AT PANAMA CANAL

    THE WINCHES WERE STEAM--THE BOILERS WERE HUGE

    WHILE ENTERING THE CANAL THE WINCHES WENT PHUTTT AS BOILERS TRIPPED

    SOMEHOW I MANAGED BY GETTING ALL HANDS ON DECK TO PULL ROPES WITH SHEER MUSCLE POWER-- AND I ASKED THE PILOT NOT TO REPORT IT ( WHISKY ) AND CAUSE A DELAY

    IN SUCH SCENARIOS IF CAPTAIN PUTS PRESSURE ON HIS ENGINE STAFF--THEY BYPASS USUAL SAFETY PROCEDURES, TO SAVE THEIR OWN JOBS

    THE SHIP HAD COME OUT OF DRYDOCK ONLY A MONTH AGO, AND DURING BRIEFING AT THE US OFFICE , I FOUND THAT THE ATMOSPHERIC CONDENSER TUBES -- 900 OF THEM WERE RENEWED.

    THE BOILER WAS TRIPPING AS WATER MUST ENTER THE BOILER -- NOT STEAM

    WHEN YOU HAVE STEAM WINCHES THE " NARROW" INLET TUBES ON DECK OF A 900 FOOT LONG SHIP TAKES THE STEAM TO THE WINCHES --IT EXPANDS AFTER THE WORK IS DONE AND THE DEPLETED STEAM COMES BACK VIA A " WIDE " RETURN PIPE.

    IT S THEN CONDENSED TO WATER AND SEND BACK TO BOILER --AS A CLOSED LOOP SYSTEM

    HOWEVER IF THE STEAM IS USED TO HEAT CARGO INSIDE TANKS -- THE ENGINEERING IS REVERSE—

    HERE THE INLET STEAM TUBES ARE "WIDE" AND THE RETURN WATER TUBES ARE "NARROW" AFTER EXCHANGING HEAT-- WATER IS INSIDE THE RETURN TUBES GO BACK TO THE BOILER HOTWELL AND THEN INTO THE BOILER --AS A CLOSED LOOP SYSTEM

    I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANY CUNT ENGINEER AT SEA UNDERSTANDING THIS SIMPLE CONCEPT

    EVERY SHIP I GO, I TELL THE SHORE OFFICE TO CHANGE THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE TECHNICAL MANUALS .

    ON CHEMICAL TANKERS IGNORANCE CAN BE DANGEROUS

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/11/marine-engineering-self-examiner.html

    SO SO SO

    AFTER TRANSITTING THE PANAMA CANAL, I HELD A SAFETY COMMITEE MEETING

    I FOUND THE SARDARJEE CHIEF ENGINEER ( WE HAD SAILED BEFORE WHEN I WAS SECOND MATE ON A 3 LAKH TONNER CRUDE CARRIER VLCC-- HE WAS TRAINEE FIFTH ENGINEER ) AND HIS ENGINEERING TEAM TO BE STUPID-NAY –CUNTS .

    ANYWAY I GAVE ORDERS - -THE STEAM WINCH "WIDE" SILVER PAINTED RETURN PIPE CARRYING STEAM BACK TO THE ATMOSPHERIC CONDENSER ( ALMOST ALL TUBES CHOKED BY TOUGH SCALE ) --800 FEET IN LENGTH MUST BE PAINTED BLACK--

    THE COLOUR BLACK IS A GOOD RADIATOR OF HEAT

    THE CUNT ENGINEER DID NOT EVEN KNOW THE PROPERTIES OF SILVER AND BLACK COLOUR

      THE NEXT FIAT WAS-- TILL THE 90% CHOKED TUBES OF THE ATMOSHPERIC CONDENSOR WAS CLEARED , THE STEAM WINCH MUST BE KEPT ROTATING IDLE --FOR AT LEAST 20 MINUTES BEFORE ACTUAL USE

      THIS WAS TO PREVENT JHATKA ( SURGE )- WHERE WATER FROM COLD RETURN PIPES GOES INTO THE BOILER FIRST AND THEN SUDDENLY HOT STEAM ENTERS

      JATKA CAN MAKE HONI INTO ANHONI-- AND ANHONI INTO HONI ( MAKE OR BREAK WHERE REVERSE HOLDS TRUE )

      I USED JHATKA AS A CHANGE MANAGEMNT TOOL TOO.—THE FAMOUS VADAKAYIL KALARI TAP ON NOSE

      LATER I USED THE SAME JHATKA PRINCIPLE TO CLEAR THE SCALE CHOKED TUBES WITH HOT STEAM AND COLD FREON GAS

      YOU KNOW HOW A CHAMPION RACE HORSE FEELS WHILE IN THE SOLE COMPANY OF DONKEYS -- AND HE IS FORCED TO BRAAAAY --JUST TO BLEND IN AND BE PART OF THE FUCKIN’ TEAM

      LATER THE SAME BOILER FURNACE HAD A EXPLOSION ( THE WEAK AREA OF THE FURNACE GAVE WAY ) AND SAVED THE SHIP-- I KNEW THE SPOT ..

      WHEN THE FURNACE EXPLODED I ASKED THE CHIEF ENGINEER TO CHECK THE DELIBERATE WEAK CRUMPLE ZONE SPOT AND HE CONFIRMED IT— LEST THE EXPLOSION BECOMES A BOMB . HERE A BOMB IS CONVERTED TO A WEAK POOFFFF

      I HAD PREDICTED THIS A WEEK IN ADVANCE AND SEND SEVERAL MESSAGES TO THE SHORE BOSSES.

      THIS WAS ABOUT THE WATER WALL PROTECTING THE REFRACTORY. IF THERE IS NO WATERWALL THE REFRACTORY OF THE FURNACE BECOME WHITE HOT --AND BECOMES A PERMANENT HEAT LEG OF THE FIRE TRAINGLE

      IN BOILER FURNACE-- AS SOON AS THE BOILER TRIPS HUGE FD FANS INJECT FRESH AIR BY ACC ( AUTOMATIC COMBUSTION CONTROL )

      SO SO SO

      HEAT IS THERE . FRESH OXYGEN IS INJECTED AND FUEL REMAINS IN A PUDDLE ( FURNACE OIL ) AT THE BOTTOMF THE FURNACE AS THE INJECTION NOZZLE AND SWIRLER IS NO GOOD WITH IMPROPERLY MAINTAINED OIL TEMPERATURES FOR FUEL INJECTION VISCOSITY

      ASK ANY MARINE ENGINEER ANYWHERE ON THIS PLANET TO READ THIS COMMENT AND EXPLAIN THE GIST-- HE WILL SHIT IN HIS ENGINEERING LANGOT AND KEEP QUIET. HE WILL NOT BE GOOD ENOUGH TO COMMENT

      FUCKIN' CUNTS !

      READ THE SOLE COMMENT IN THE POST BELOW--

      BELOW IS AN EXAMPLE OF JHATKA—HONI CAN BECOME ANHONI
