Into Ship’s Massive Water Tank! | Life at Sea | Mariner’s Vlog #1


ok first vlog let’s do something
interesting. Today the deck crew are going into the freshwater tank to do something
inspection & cleaning. I’m going to join them and while at it, go try and take some
shots so let’s go change into some safety gear to get to the freshwater tank we have to
go through the engine room As you can see, the water tanks are structurally reinforced and streghtened into compartments so climbing
around is actually quite difficult I also have to be extra careful since it is wet and slippery we check for any cracks or damages and
also check worry if anything such as small organisms that are growing Here we see the deck crew washing the tank Finish inspecting the water tank Going for dinner now Today is Sunday so we have a special western dinner After dinner I have to go up to the bridge for 8pm-12am navigation watch Going up to the bridge now for my nights watch and that ends my day if you enjoyed
watching my vlogs and would like more please like share and subscribe.
I will post up a vlog at least once per week thanks for watching

  1. can you make a video about the galley department? 🙂 your videos are very informative 🙂

  2. Downright dangerous. Claustrophobic, the bowels of ship are not for faint hearted.

    Worst part : Somebody accidentally seals you in it.

    Supervision plus cable for those going into these bowel tanks are a must.

  3. Does he ride on a Segway or does he use a gyroscope for his camera or why does it look that weird if he walks somewhere?

  4. Why isn't reverse osmosis used to filter sea water? Filters seems less bulky than to carry fresh water for a few months…

  5. hey Jeff, nice videos. Us cubicle drones sometimes dream of a life at sea. (yeah, I know: the grass is always greener….)

  6. Jef, I've enjoyed watching your videos. I was wondering does the ship purify the water after taking it out of the tanks for your consumption?

  7. Is that tank painted with any kind of a special paint so it doesn't leak into the water?

  8. Engine rooms like the titanic's are way cooler and more interesting you fucking spanner

  9. Couple questions, 1st. What do I need to do become one of you guys?, 2nd. Is the pay good? , and the third is just a statement, that food looks fochin delicious!

  10. It would be a nightmare for me to be trapped in one of those tanks. It would be hella scary.

  11. Subbed. Currently going back and watching all your vids. I was just wondering and I'm sure you guys have procedures for this, but I think it would make me nervous being that far from the life boat or even just the open deck of the ship if something went wrong eg fire and collision or sinking ship?!

  12. How is the Oxygen content in these closed tanks? Is it normal, below normal? Is anything done to improve the air quality before you enter the tank?

  13. Hi Jeff…I love your Vlogs about your adventures at sea.  I've always dreamed about traveling the world by ship. Watching your videos lets me to do that. Your videos are very informative, entertaining and well produced.  Thanks for sharing and for inspiring.

  14. Ha ha, floating down the halls on a hoverboard. I caught that but checked the comments just to sea. I spelled C like that on porpoise. That too. I have an ocean theme for a comment.
    I work at a BK an can only wish for a job like yours. I think your channel and it's content work really well put together so I subscribed.

  15. What a maze. Does your ship maintain some sort of accountability when people go into confined spaces like that?

  16. sir, you have a AMSA COC ya any some country COC, plzz give me answer sir……👍👍👍👍

  17. I work the docks in Houston, TX…I see you get dressed faster than me😃if you're ever this way I'm at Seaboard…safe passage sir

  18. how come it is the deck crew and not the engineers that do this sort of stuff?

  19. Hi! your video is fantastic but I think you should consider all entry procedures for confined spaces, it would be great if you do one, remember to take into account not only use PPE but obtain the captain's permission, ventilate the confined space, measure the atmofera and all that. Jeff's success

  20. Hi Jeff, How the freshwater tanks in ballast water tanks compere to each other? is it the some inspection and cleaning procedure? specially considering that ballast water has a lot of external organisms.

  21. Hello Jeffhk, this blog is very interesting. I need you to help me with some doubts. I would like to know if the safety equipment is anti-slip? And in case there was an organism in the tank, how would we fight it? Thank you!

  22. Excellent. Absolutely we have a lot of work on board ships, but it's so interesting, and always using the PPE for our protection.What was the procedure before entering into the water tank?

  23. Wow man, it's so incredible that tanks, and so big. That Engine Room is great, i like it. Why are not you a Marine Engineer? Why are you a Pilot? For me, is more interesting Marine Facilities.

  24. Is there any specific type of equipment necessary to perform inspections like the one you performed on the water tanks, established in some of the international agreements?

  25. Hello jeffhk greetings from Venezuela. I am a maritime engineering student at the Maritime University of the Caribbean. I have a question because in the video you explain the inspection of a tank. what is the procedure to ventilate these confined spaces thanks?. I would like you to make a video about it.

  26. Hey jeff, what a good video, remember that if your videos are of help to guide or educate people who wish to dedicate themselves to this world, take into account that before entering confined spaces you must carry out some entry procedures, for ensure the life of the sailor, as these spaces do not have much oxygen and usually there are toxic gases for humans which can lead to death if these procedures are not followed. It is only a recommendation for upcoming videos.

  28. Jeff did you know that there is a resolution that talks about the
    entry procedures and about the training that the sailors must have
    before entering these spaces?
    check resolution A.1050 (27)

  29. Questions:Why is there pink film in tank.?Is it built up algea?.Also you guys go in there with not sanitized boots and or uniform.I guess in my head I had more strict hygene practice like ER type of sanitation where no germs would get in because its water that gets consumed by humans.

  30. Hi bro big fan of your . I am from India and really your vedio helps a lot can u plz show us how to do main steering test from bridge means in details and also emergent steering room also some lifeboat equipments and some chart correction thnks in advance

  31. Great video, please more ship technical details and sights. Annoying music.

  32. Sir…..have you ever lost in these manholes because all are looking same.
    And how do you go to the perfact site……..do you have a map with you??

  33. Hay love what you have don, Im sharing the vids with my squad you sailors in Australia www.sailingschool.com.au www.blownaway.com.au

  34. Hi Jeff
    New engine from MAN Energy Solution (MAN Diesel & Turbo)
    3D animation
    https://youtu.be/02fG6ESFkEE
    Check it out…
    chers

  35. thanks for your sharing , i learn marine engine in university, but i hear that engine room is bad than deck board!

  36. Imagine being in their when the captain starts to flood the ballast tanks…

  37. For those who never seen a Duct keel
    Support us

  38. "Check for small organisms growing in there" — I guess you have to have a procedure for cleaning while you retreat to get rid of the ones that you will unavoidably track into the tank.

  39. You are not a mariner. U just a piece of pink shit

  40. Great videos, though had to turn down that really terrible music 🙂

  41. Washing a tank does they need a special qualification to work in narrow environments? And what is their job title?

  42. Is the ships time onboard adjusted continually to be the same as your geographical location ? If so how do you adjust your shifts ?
