    trim astern, would you go to floating dock or a drydock and why? Why would you
    want the blocks position to be changed?
    4- Loading preparations on oil tankers, he went into details with IG system and it looks
    like he didn’t hear me when I talked about the valve before the O2 analyser, so he
    asked at the end of it what would happen if the O2 detects 10% Oxygen, BM&SF.

    with iron ore.
    6- Pilot ladder specifications and rigging procedures.
    7- Voyage planning info you need from 2nd off and what info you would give him, he
    wanted to hear navigational aspects and increasing the watch levels so this led to
