Saveall Cover During Cargo Operations


Whenever a bulk carrier is discharging her cargo, due to a combination of the shore grabs not closing correctly, wind, or just plain carelessness on behalf of the crane driver, the ship's decks and savealls usually get covered in the cargo resulting in hours of crew cleaning. This Member ship uses two pieces of hardboard cut to fit to cover the saveall and keep the cargo out! No bunker transfers should be taking place with the covers on and the oil tanks should not be so full that heating would cause a spill. Covers should be used during cargo operations only and at no other time.
