Cleaning the Ship with the Captain
Proper maintenance of a ship is essential, you need to clean it every time and more often besides from overhauling the machinery. The cleanliness of the ship is one of the good factors for the owner and for the charterer, to make good impression to them and to others. We treat it like our own house and backyard that we lived in for 4-9 months on-board.
One time we are on anchorage since we don´t have any charter so we will stay there for long time. This is a good opportunity for deck crews to full force for cleaning. This is very unusual this time, the Captain of the ship and Chief Officer, the second-in-command planned to help their crew mates for cleaning the deck. They enjoy that moment working together like a rating they were before. It´s not that easy to remove the oily dirt and rust from the deck if you will ask and this need dedication in work for us finish our job and contract on-board.
