- Standard work orders (reuse past projects)
- Defect list (open work orders)
- LC plan
- Let the vessel order the spares needed and coordinate with the purchaser for delivery. It must also be clear what stores & spares you need BEFORE the docking and what can be delivered DURING the docking.
- Give agents details to the various subcontractors and try to estimate WHEN they should attend. You don't want all of them onboard during the first day in dock.
- Let the Master/CE handle all vessels normal stores and chandler activities. You will NOT have time to chase printer cartridges and other routine items.
As much detail as possible is needed
- Details of the equipment
- Details on what needs to be done
- Details of consumables and services needed
A visit onboard the vessel 4-6 months before the docking can help very much. Many questions can be cleared, docking jobs examined, services/surveys confirmed and spare parts orders can be discussed
It is also a good opportunity to discuss what the crew can prepare before the docking to save costs and most of all time.
Use Maindeck mobile inspection app, which includes offline functionality, to add work orders. This is a great tool for the crew to effortlessly help on the specification.
- Condition assessment
- New regulations
- Previous docking specs and reports
