 CHIRP is pleased to publish Maritime FEEDBACK issue number 55. Once again we feature a wide variety of topics and we are grateful to all of our reporters. The subject matter ranges from the dangers of removing heat protection from engines, MARPOL violations, poor communications, hours of rest violations, and further examples of poor design. The role of the DPA is a significant factor in some of the reports where reporters have not felt able to report violations to the Company for fear of reprisals. As always we hope that you enjoy this edition of FEEDBACK and we welcome any comment with respect to the content.
