Our site is designed as an exchange for hosting or downloading free study material for the general benefit of students in the seafaring community. It mainly contains course notes, solved examination papers and spreadsheets required for clearing (deck) exams and also for practical shipboard use. This site was originally hosted on geocities but since their closure, we decided to shift to paid hosting to keep it going. Do let us know if you want your own dedicated page within the site, we will be glad to host it for you.



Development and Direction

We were the first batch under the new STCW-95 syllabus and there was a general paucity of study material. Owing to this we typed up our notes and subsequently posted them on the web for friends. As we progressed through the ranks we kept the site going with further compilations/links/spreadsheets and anything else we thought of as relevant or interesting.

Developing this site has always been for fun and never for profit. This has enabled us to get in touch with a lot of people from the industry we would otherwise not have had the pleasure of interacting with. These days we mainly rely on company circulars, updates to the SMS or current students to pass their notes along so that we may have an idea of the more "popular" topics. We only hope that more people could type up their orals 'sets' so that we may post them region wise.

Overview of Contents

>> Notes for Oral examinations broadly based on the prescribed syllabus by the MCA. Each rank has an individual section allocated for it. Also contained within are general topics which are currently in vogue. A section on ROR and contingencies is repeated in each rank.

>> SQA examination has two sections, navigation and stability. Most of the navigation & stability question papers have been solved. The numericals and the plotting sheets have been seperated from the narrative type questions. Further notes for both section have also been compiled by students in various colleges and posted.

>> A database of maritime links has been compiled. We will keep adding to the list as it is very useful for researching maritime topics for projects and courseworks.

>> A spreadsheet exchange has been set up for our friends to download/post any material they feel is relevant to maritime studies or shipboard operations.

>> A section of further studies has been added recently. This is owing to a growing number of queries from friends who want alternate qualifications or who intend to work ashore in the maritime related fields.
