Yeah, I handle P&I condition, Flag States, On/Off hire, condition/evaluation, demolition voyage surveys and various other kind of inspections & surveys directly or indirectly connected to shipping.

Bottomline, I'm a Master Mariner like Capt Nandu but he is almost two generations my senior.

That's simply great. I have still not hung my seaboots. It's just that I keep doing these assignments with a surveying company when on leave.
Here's a ship going for scrap:

@nandu, that might be a bit dificult considering about 120 degrees of longitudinal seperation ! Am in Campos Basin, Brazil.
Easier to give a holler once am back home. (on the 3rd)

The interiors are so neat and tidy that if not for the view of the sea from the windows one would feel this is a pic of some office space.

You also mentioned about the tea/coffee station. Are you not allowed to have it on the deck? Did not quite understand your comment.
