STCW95 Day Three. Tall Tales and Fire

We had a tutor change today. A more salty older dog if you will. Not as class focussed as our last tutor he stormed his way through the course material so he could tell stories and anecdotes like the time his ship had hit the Glasgow sewerage pump barge.

Sadly that is all of his stories that I can remember.

Note to self "old sea dogs can baffled the hell out of you with jargon from a bygone era if you let them"

The second half of the day was learning about fire safety. We got familiar with fire safety breathing apparatus's and learned some theory. Tomorrow we will don full fire safety equipment and run to the local food bar and learn other valuable things.

We are both absolutely shattered.
