Monthly Safety Scenario: Cargo and Hull damage while at anchor in heavy weather

"A small general cargo vessel loaded steel cargo at several different ports. At the first port the vessel loaded steel plates and at the second port the vessel loaded drums of submarine cables using its own crane.

The charterer had a port captain present during the loading operation. Stevedores secured the cargo. At the third port the vessel loaded drums of another type of cable. During the loading the chief officer inspected the stowage and cargo lashings. He did not find any deficiencies and was happy with the stowage."
