Harbors: Preparing Waterfront Operations Log Sheet

Information on the loading or unloading operations must be recorded on a waterfront operations log sheet. This information is used to prepare DD Form 250-1.

 

PREPARING WATERFRONT OPERATIONS LOG SHEET

 

Information on the loading or unloading operations must be recorded on a waterfront operations log sheet. This information is used to prepare  DD Form 250-1. The log sheet should be kept at the waterfront terminal. Discrepancies between the shore log and the ship's log should be identified. The information that the log sheet should include is given below:

 

        Vessel name and assigned cargo number.

 

Date and time of the following actions:

Checking Mooring Lines

 

When the vessel is moored, mooring lines should be taut enough to hold it steady. The lines should also be slack enough to allow for the rise and fall of the tide and the change in the vessel's draft during product transfer. Lines must be watched and adjusted as product is moved and tides rise and fall.

 

Preparing Gangway and Testing Signal System

 

As soon as the vessel is docked, vessel personnel should rig a gangway with a safety net underneath so that inspectors and other personnel may board safely. Special equipment may be used if vessel movement makes rigging a gangway difficult. Vessel access must be according to Coast Guard regulations. The need for access applies mainly to large tank vessels where shore personnel witness sampling and gaging. The signal used at the dock to regulate product transfer should be tested.

 

Notifying the Vessel Master of Fire Protection Services

 

The master of the vessel must be told of fire protection services available at the pier. These services include power, water, and steam which may be needed to put out fires in the boiler and galley.
