The Sole Lookout Man

LOOKOUT-MAN CNIC LIMBE Just like the police who are in charge of the safety of their citizen in society against all criminal circumstances that prevail or may prevail. At Sea, we have the Lookout man. He is a member of the bridge team (consisting of; OOW, AB,  boatswain , deck cadet, officers, and the master). With these awesome team, the vessel can navigate safely through the random occuring obstacle at sea. There are different duties assigned to the lookout man based on the time of day, and weather conditions.  Either way, he/her main duty is to ensure the safe navigation of the vessel at Sea. The sole lookout man with undivided focus on the task at hand using all his senses, mainly sight and hearing to detect incoming dangers for the safe navigation of the vessel. He then reports to the OOW who processes the given information to the master or any superior of his on the vessel at the moment of need before immediate action is to be taken. Who can be the sole lookout onboard? In genera

International Women's Day

 ðŸ§­Happy International Women's Day🥂 It's been a promising year so far so good and most of us have successfully improved in our mishaps ways to better our tomorrow. One of the reasons, we are so successful is due to the prayers, motivation talk and sometimes even cursing of our parents 👪. Pushing us forward into the path laid before us. This is why, we of the kingcadet association thought it wise to appreciate our supporters and others around the world for sparking the way for one, so one can spark for another and another and so forth. Once again, thank you dearest mothers for letting your sons and daughters venture into these fields of business. We hope as you life on and across this day, so will we sail and come home once again into your comforting arms.


Sea view, limbe Greetings, ladies and gentlemen around the world. Fellow mariners aspiring for the spark of greatness. The is more to life than what the sea can offer . After all we all where born on solid soil. If SEA GOING is the goal and maybe due to some unexpected circumstances it fails what else can still be done with respect to the field you specialized in.? Have you every though of this before? Maritime institutes all across the world produce hundreds of new deck cadets and marine engineers each year. Each of these recent graduates aspires to one day make it big in the maritime industry by becoming a top-notch seafarer.  With their newfound knowledge and training, these officers join reputable maritime companies' ships, work for a few years, and try to advance their ranks. Despite very lucrative job offers, an exciting working environment, and a "globetrotting" lifestyle, the majority of these sailors prefer to leave their ship positions and take jobs ashore. This

Safety first 🗣👤🌊

 It's not the first time a seafarer or someone falls from the ship into the ocean without a safety jacket. Still, we should be where that, not all falls guarantee safe come back.  As an officer, pilot and rating. We should make it a habit to always follow safety procedures except unorthodox circumstances show up. From the picture above you can see that the seafarer recently used the gangway to come down to the ladder before exiting the ship to the other vessel whose aim was to pick him/her up no matter the reason. All safety steps taken up till that point seemed safe and professional.  As we know but refuse to admit it, "Small changes/mistakes/corrections affected big conclusive results". Still from the picture, you can see that the sea level is not the best and it will be hard to hold to one's stability; if you were to stand in a vessel with less stability than the one you were on.  Nevertheless, before his/her fall without the safety jacket. If he/she held on to the

Connection| Potential| Ambition

Given all that was and what is to come, a common word links them all. The work connection. An ability to provide information of all shapes and kind to none common sense sigma. This ability existed long before the creation of mankind.  In the world we leave today, 3 things matter the most for a successful career. There are as follows; Connections It can be viewed in two or more ways but, I know of two only beings; YOU KNOW WHO AND WHO KNOWS. Most of us got to thank our parents, relatives or many other unknown characters that help us achieve our goals behind closes doors. Most opportunities like travelling abroad were preorganized before we even had the time to say, "Why". Knowing different people, cultures and breaking past language barriers has proven to be a source of opportunity to achieve even greater dreams over the sky . For example, a poor boy can only dream below his ceiling which is what is imaginary and real to reach but is also impossible from where they are now. Th
