    4. a. Ventilators, air pipes together with flame screens, scuppers and discharges serving (7-3-2/1.1.2(d)) spaces on or below the freeboard/weather deck as applicable. b. Air pipe "closure devices" were randomly opened out and their condition found or placed in satisfactory condition. Particular attention is to be paid to the condition of zinc coating in heads constructed from galvanized steel.

    5. Watertight bulkheads, bulkhead penetrations, end bulkheads of enclosed super- (7-3-2/1.1.2(e)) structures and the operation of any doors in same.

    Associated REPORT NO. NO570345 DATE 09 DECEMBER 2004

     Rule YES NO N/A

    4. a. Loading guidance, including loading & unloading sequences and/or stability data were (7-3-2/1.1.5) verified on board as applicable. b. Loading instrument, where accepted/required for classification, was confirmed in working order (7-3-2/1.1.5) by use of the approved check conditions, and the user’s manual was verified on board.

    5. It was verified that no alterations to the hull or superstructure(s) have been made that would (7-3-2/1.1.6) affect the calculation determining the position of the Load Lines. The freeboard marks were sighted, found plainly visible, or recut and/or painted as required

    6. Anchors and chain cables, anchor windlass including foundation, prime mover, shafting, wildcats, (7-3-2/1.1.7) brakes, controls, and chain stoppers were examined as far as possible and found satisfactory. 7. No significant changes were found to have been made to the arrangement of structural fire (7-3-2/1.1.8) protection. Fire doors, where fitted, were operationally tested and considered satisfactory. 8. Verification that means for escape from accommodation, machinery space, and other spaces are (7-3-2/1.1.8) satisfactory

    9. a. Suspect areas of the hull, (locations showing substantial corrosion and/or are considered by (7-3-2/1.1.9) the Surveyor to be prone to rapid wastage) were examined, considered satisfactory and no thickness measurements considered necessary.

    b. Suspect areas, which were identified at previous Intermediate and/or Special Survey Hull, were (7-3-2/1.1.9) examined, thickness measurements taken and considered satisfactory.

    10. SALT WATER BALLAST SPACES (All Vessels) (7-3-2/1.1.9)

    b. As a consequence of POOR coating condition, where SOFT coating has been applied or NO coating applied, in double bottom salt water ballast tanks where substantial corrosion is documented were internally examined, considered satisfactory and no thickness measurements considered necessary

    c. For vessels > 15 years, at least three (3) ballast tanks, other than double bottom tanks, in way of spaces designated for the carriage of cargo, where Fair coating conditions were identified at the previous INT or SSH were internally examined.

    d. Peak tanks, where Fair coating conditions were identified at the previous INT or SSH were internally examined

    11. GAUGINGS: Hull thickness gaugings were taken as a consequence of this survey, as noted on (7-3-2/1.1.9) the attached GRF check sheet.

    12. Where vessel fitted with Helicopter Deck, securing arrangements and safety nets were (7-3-2/1.1.10) examined and considered satisfactory.

    13. An examination was made of the structural arrangements, fittings and appliances as related (7-3-2/1.1.13) to timber, tanker or special Load Line assignments (if any) and all considered satisfactory.

    14. For bulk carriers and general cargo ships ? 15 years of age, 36 photos (total) were taken in way of ballast tanks, combined cargo ballast tanks and cargo holds, where these spaces are required to be internally examined, and of main deck hatch covers and closing appliances as applicable. Two (2) or three (3) photos were taken of the outside hull and main deck and two (2) or three (3) photos were taken of machinery spaces. 15. Annual Load Line Inspection was carried out at this time. Following items are in addition to those items required for class elsewhere in this report that are also pertaining to ALLl)
