    Default Muster List

    Hi All,

    I've been assigned a task of producing a Muster List for a small yacht (crew of 8). I have a sample of a blank MCA Muster List, but it seems a bit uninspiring and non-specific. So I was wondering if anyone had any examples from their ships/yachts that I could get some inspiration off. Or any advice whatsoever for producing an effective muster list that crew will read and understand easily!

    Cheers

    James

    Hooray, someone who actually gives a damn! Thanks James!

    I'll see what I can dig up. I probably don't have anything for that few crew, but I bet I got some buddies who do.

    I believe a "muster list' is what Americans call the "emergency station bill" which gives crew assignments in an emergency. The "articles" is what the crew signs when they "sign on". It is the agreement between the master and the crew with regards the nature of the voyage and wages.

    I think Kennebec Captain is correct.
    Here is a simple one we had on a fishing boat I was on. It had names specified so they would all be absolutely sure. I deleted them for this post. Its pretty simple. We had a 25 man crew. Hope it helps.


    FV Pacific Dream


    This station bill is to provide a system for the training of crewmembers and others in the duties that they would be required to undertake in the event of any accident to the vessel that may involve a fire or abandonment of the ship. Training will build efficient organization so that in an actual emergency such as a fire, stranding, man overboard or collision. The appropriate crewmembers will immediately proceed to their allotted stations and carry out the duties assigned to them with a practical approach to the emergency at hand. Should the abandonment of the vessel become necessary, they will promptly prepare the life raft for use, warn the other persons on board, and control their movements in the interest of safety.
    Mandatory drills required by law will be conducted just as if a real emergency existed, and all persons will muster at their stations for training. If in doubt of your duties, discuss the problem with the senior officer of your department.
