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 trend is gaining traction and can now be found in a number of nations throughout the world. 

As the number of seafarers leaving the profession rises year after year, we wonder what motivates people to leave such a prestigious and rewarding vocation after only a few years at sea. While some of the causes we discovered are common and obvious, there are a few that are novel and surprising. 

We enumerated the following primary issues that concern seafarers today after conducting a study that included a number of sea-going professionals who have already quit or are preparing to quit their jobs at sea. 

Please keep in mind that we are not implying that a career in the maritime business is not worthwhile. In fact, we feel that a career in merchant navy is the best career opportunity one can get.

Alpha Hawk and RT MARGO work hand in hand to remove Milaha Explorer from jetty at CNIC LIMBE

 1400hour LT Cameroon - Limbe, Milaha Explorer vessel requested assistance to get out of the jetty of CNIC LIMBE. Two vessels namely Alpha Hawk and RT MARGO assisted this event. The process was simple in theory but complex in practice. Nevertheless, Milaha Explorer was removed successfully and towed its way out of the key. This exploit was performed by Cameroonian Seafarer who gave it their all in achieving this task with efficiency and effectiveness.  Towing the ship was through the difficult part.         M.V Alpha Hark and RT Margo had to pull the vessel at its port and starboard respectively. If not the vessel might have rolled horizontally into the Sea. RT MARGO had to lash their rope for a few meters to reduce the tension in the rope; this safety measure is not taken by most towing vessels at sea and thus, we find cases like the vessels back lass destroying a part of the vessel or in the worst scenario ending someone's life. You can see from the picture or videos seafarers in

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


  Have you ever been on a vessel with a crane? Even if so, this article might be enlightening to you. ship cranes are all the same except in terms of capacity, as some outperform others. Modern-day cargo vessels and some tug boats have cranes installed on them due to the need to load and offload material from one ship to another without any incident. That's why we have crane officers who use the so-called sign language International known in the marine industry in operation with the crane operator as a guide on how to execute a successful craneage operation. 3.1 some problems encountered Before the craneage operation FORWARD HEADING LOOK OF A TUG BOAT ⛵ Before any operation is usually carried out, a toolbox talk is carried on to discuss with the team involved on how they will carry out the job with respect to the JHA (Job hazards analysis) and how to avoid or prevent them or how to move on in case it still occurs. The job is analyzed most of the time based on; health, efficiency, a


                                   Merry Christmas, Dear Friendly Society And Happy New Year Once again, I will like to thank all of you guys for the warm support of viewing my BLOG /channel these past few months generating over 5k views time. Moreover, it is December the Christmas season of the year, where the beach are dazzling with goodies of all shapes and sizes. A period where saved money is spend and where spent money is saved. Most of us are waiting for a friend or two to visit or even take us out. But forget that, love is 50%-50% on each side of the coin and without proper invitations and meaningful connections, it is possible no one will show up. Friends come and go in different times of our life. Some stay too long and others leave too soon. But one thing in common, we share most is wonderful memories of the time we spend together with each other. Just like the sun rises in the morning and sets in the evening.  In the movies, where you see two good friends end up being enemie
