They’d Tell ME– ” AJIT, You should KNOW WHY YOUR SHORE TECHNICAL BOSSES LOVE YOU Just like the PLAGUE. THEY KNOW You are Better THAN ALL OF THEM Mixed Collectively “
TO THIS I’d REPLY– ” I do know !”
I joined a company where the highest technical boss was an India marwari Jew RxxVxxSxI
One in every of my effectively wishers instructed me ” Dont argue with him on engineering issues -as he is taken into account as the best INDIAN ENGINEER . He like his staff to be humble “
I replied ” HUMILITY has by no means been my forte –and that too with ignorant CUNTS. However I promise this –I wont go to him, he will come to be for a HEAD ON struggle– and I’ll reduce his EGO right down to measurement ceaselessly”
I did not have to attend lengthy for this confrontation — between a clever / competent ship captain and a ego laden high honcho who thought he was ZE cat’s whiskers”
The ship was loading cargo at Richard’s Bay ( Soth Africa )
The Fore Peak ballast tank valve spindle broke –with the tank full –and ship would go down by head
Earlier than I made arrangements to pump out the water utilizing a rapidly made EDUCTOR — I warned Chief Engineer–make certain machinery lub oil pressures are maintained–as most sumps have aft suction.
We were down by the head for about three hours at berth.
Whereas crusing out , the ship was in the narrow channel with pilot on board .
I received a frantic call from Chief Engineer ( a senior engineer )–that fundamental engine lub oil stress is falling quickly and that he is stopping engines
I instructed him firmly –I DONT CARE IF THE ENGINES BREAK Into a THOUSAND Items–YOU SHALL NOT Cease THE ENGINES. I am Lowering Speed TO Minimal — Observe MY ORDERS
There was NO time to name tugs and tie up– so i acquired the ship out of the breakwater , moved out of the entry channel and dropped anchor–with a 5 knot aghulas present flowing throughout
Simply after dropping the anchor I informed the agent and port control. I mentioned “Now we have a crucial engine downside which must be solved earlier than I move out “
To cut a protracted story quick– we discovered a chinese language make polyster shirt enveloping the main engine lub oil sump–it was removed and the issue was solved.
After I obtained off this ship–I used to be doing knowledgeable course in Mumbai –when the company personnel head in Mumbai called me / he stated ” Ajit , large boss has flown in from Hong Kong–he needs to satisfy you “
The top Honcho was sitting in an empty cabin and that i knew he wished no witnesses
He hisses at me ” Captain, you told the Richards Bay port control, that your engines had a vital downside. Why did you call this small drawback Crucial– the chief engineer agrees with me it was a small problem which was instantly resolved
I hissed back — furious —
I can get so fuckin’ furious that CUNTS shit in their pants
” DONT MAKE ME SAY Anything . IS THERE A Larger Problem TO AN ENGINE THAN Lack of LUB OIL Pressure ? Can you Start THE ENGINES ON EMERGENCY STATIONS DIRECT Management ( Gas/ AIR ) With out LUB OIL Pressure ?”
His face became white– I guess he was out of touch
I obtained and and mentioned ” Have you ever completed ? “
As I handed the door I turned back and told him ” The Chief Engineer continues to be on board. Inform him that ship DIRECT EMERGENCY Management MEANS –IT Must BYPASS THE GOVERNOR.
