Crew Training - who is responsible?
Overall the Master/Skipper is responsible for:
- the safe operation of the ship on a voyage, the safety and wellbeing of all passengers and crew, and the safety of cargo carried
- has final authority (while in command) to control the ship and maintain the discipline of all people onboard
- is responsible for compliance with all relevant requirements of the MTA, regulations and maritime rules.
It's important for the safety of everyone onboard, that regular, thorough Crew Training is conducted on all vessels, and done right! SeaLogs now has the ability for you to customise your training list to suit your vessel and operation.

Keeping one vessel afloat is a big enough challenge on its own. For those of you that have operations with multiple vessels, the challenge multiplies. Keeping track of your vessels locations, plans, and data are vital to the success of your operation and the safety of your crew and operations.
