MSS Case June: Stowaways in the steering gear trunk

In the June Monthly Safety Scenario (MSS) the stowaways are not being discovered even though several checks were made at the vessel.

 Rodder - Stowaways hiding place

A container vessel had departed from Lagos and the next port of call was in Malaysia. Before departure, the crew performed a stowaway search as per the Ship Security Plan. No stowaways were found. The vessel departed and after disembarkation another search was carried out. Still no stowaways were found.

Each month the Club's Loss Prevention team issues a new safety scenario to assist members in their efforts to comply with international safety regulations and to follow best practice. 

When discussing the case please consider that the actions taken at the time made sense for all involved. Do not only judge, but also ask why you think these actions were taken and could this happen on your vessel?
