Comments on wind and offline-sailing
« on: November 05, 2016, 06:34:24 am »
After a wonderful trip from Helsinki to Kotka (Finland), my Stena-Hollandica found a place to moore in paralell to the Vasikkasaari quayside on Thursday evening (17:00 UTC). The next morning I found her turned 90 clockwise, half on the quay, half lying in the water. The turnindicator still turned very slowly, although neither the machines nor the bow thruster were in operation. One azipod was left turned 90 from the mooring operation, the day before. When unmooring, land-water detection stroke back and the ship has been taken out of the simulation. Later, I considered what the reason could have been, and remembered, that at this time a wind of 15 kts blew. I suspect that this wind and the missing land-water detection in the offline-sailing mode have moved the ship despite mooring. The First Officer claims to have been sober.

Dieter

Hello again!

Once again made a trip to Kotka and moored four days at the same place. Nothing happened. Now going out and sailing to St. Petersburg.

bye

I'd chance the locks on the liquor cabinet anyway.

But yeah, I really need offline land water detection. It's kinda complex and requires time which I don't have at the moment.

Yes. Offline land water detection is one thing. The other thing I wanted to point out was the faulty behaviour of the mooring function. The ship moved though it was tied up.
