Leaving Harbour Brief and Entering Harbour Brief

Subsunk

As it says on the tin... I'm doing some preps for the 200 Tonne Master's oral exam. The syllabus covers preps for entering and leaving harbour, and I remember that the standard RN brief format pretty much covered the lot.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a template for this briefs? Many thanks in advance.
 
Met, passage to pilotage point, pilotage, intentions for coming alongside, CBM's brief for ropes and wires, XO's safety brief, CO's overall comments.

Mmmmmmmmm fancy an Ops person forgetting the Engineering Brief from MEO/WEO saying that the vessel is in a fit state and actually capable of sailing safely to its destination..........Strange that, no engineers and you'd be in a floating bath tub.

Absolutely no knowledge of the subject, but I'd have thought a civilian vessel would not have as many available propulsion, navigational & communication options and configurations to worry about.

A civilian brief would surely include a one-liner about anythng not working, rather than the inclusion of two additional people expressly employed to drone on about what bits of kit actually works this week & what doesn't or who is going to be wearing what on the upper scupper ;)

Their Lordships, in their infinite wisdom, made a training film for use by all potential nautical types. Here it is:

That makes you an expert in some jurisdictions.
I have seen a few on the Bridge with the same knowledge as Ninja but unfortunately trying to blag otherwise, skipper soon had their number, blind pilotage in and out of Portland Harbour.

Entering Gibraltar Harbour dived was a bit of a laugh. Surfacing in the middle of
it was even more surprising to FOGIB. Skips just wanted to see if it could be done.

It could.

Billy I think that was the breed of boat skippers, it was their toy and they wanted to test its limits, and to be the first smart ares to do it.

There again seen a skimmer with either the Jimmy or skipper water skiing of the back?

What the harbour station for that? Close up for high speed playing?

Then there is always the ME/WE chicken OPDEF brief, which goes up first the Purple or the Green umbrella to say not fit to sail? once declared it is amazing how many little bits need a fix from the other department?
 
We once had the List 5 RNR First Officer of the old P&O cruise liner Oriana embarked for 'sea training' and his OOW handover brief was "Two burning, two turning, both swimming pools empty, heading that way."

Typical, forget about the engineers. Classic RN error. Maybe the brief needs to be conducted in French or English Simplified for the French & US engineers!
