Re: Need inspiration for bachelorproject
Hello Stefan. I know you are a studious young man with a serious question for the forum but I am a bored old man who likes to crack wise and cannot resist any good opportunity to do so, so here are my suggestions for subjects to use in your paper:
Communications: GMDSS...really, haven't we wasted enough time on this already?
Communications: the history of the Filippino monkey and who is he really?
Piracy: what is the most effective calibre and rate of fire?
Pollution: effectively hiding your "Magic Pipe" from Port State Inspectors
Maritime Law...how to bring your foreign offshore MPSV to work in the US Gulf and keep the foreign crew onboard?
Maritime Labor: 12 tips for masters to beat a downtrodden crew and extract every last drop of sweat from them
Maritime Labor: 12 tricks for chief mates to use to deny overtime pay
Maritime Management: strategies in using backroom deals to assist the Maritime Unions to "see it from the shipowner's point of view".
Safety Management: ISM...the effectiveness of the micro SMS. Does it really require 1000 sheets of paper in three binders to prevent accidents at sea?
Navigation: logic behind the scrapping all of the existing "little rules" of the road in favor of just one grand unifying "big vessel rule"?
Watchkeeping: is "heavy metal" ok to listen to on the midwatch as long as you don't wake the captain?
Watchkeeping: blood caffeine levels and extreme "Red Bull" use at sea on coastal tankships...is it a hidden timebomb?
Technology: The robot DPO...removing the human element entirely
I hope these suggestions help and good studies to you cadet
btw...I have been the the Maersk Training Center in Svendborg. A very charming harbortown. You should get aboard with Maersk Drilling or Maersk Contractors. They are top rate and you can go very far there!
Brody: You're certifiable, Quint! You know that?
Quint: Yeah, yeah, yeah...
