Tour of the Mega Container Ship | Life at Sea | Mariner’s Vlog #3


Let me show you around the ship Compass Deck radar scanners, and the funnel back
there. antennas everywhere.. antennas… antennas.. Heading down into the bridge The ship has a computer system which connects all the essential machinery and equipment together Most important equipment of course is the coffee machine We also coordinate all the ship activities from here, so literally we are in the command center
of the ship. Aye aye Captain! The accomodation has many floors All of them have some cabins and facilities. To get
around we can use the elevator or we use the stairs. Our ship has nine floors which we
call “decks”. The higher ranking officer lives in the upper decks, the crew lives in the lower decks. Follow me and I’ll show you around each deck. This is a standard size cabin, we have our own fridge, a queen size bed, a couch, a coffee table our own bathroom, a desk, computer is not included. Some facilities we have our Karaoke Room Library Recreation Room Ping pong room A Basketball court Mini Gym Two laundry rooms and two drying rooms Bonded Store Why is the rum always gone? Vegetable room Meat room Fish room Cook: My goodness… Galley This is our duty messroom Here we have the officer’s messroom The officer’s pantry Into the galley again, this is our chief cook His cooking oil / sauces, and on the left side here we have his cooking equipment. This is the crew’s pantry And lastly, the crew’s messroom And outside here is the lifeboat Conference room Ship’s Office Emergency Headquarters Changing locker And now i’ll bring you guys out to the main deck Moving towards the aft we have the aft station The big drums are hydraulic mooring winches And the small round blocks are bollards and bits Here you can see the wash from our propellers Now we will start heading towards the forward station. Our ship is 323 meters long so at normal
walking speed it takes about 4 to 5 minutes to get from the aft to forward station So even though we are speeding up right now, it still takes a long time here is our one additional life raft at the forward at the forawrd station now you can see the white forawrd mast and then this is our anchor, the hawsepipe This enormous thing is our spare anchor The shackle is twice the size of my hand! Head on up onto a lashing bridge Our ship has 20 lashing bridges and 9 cargo holds These lashing bridges and cargo holds are used to securely store containers through the watertight door now we’re heading
towards the engine room. We’re using the underdeck passage which runs underneath the main
deck so it is also 323 meters long This is our 68,000 kilo-watt main engine. If the bridge is the brain of the ship then the main engine will be the heart, it not only
propelles our ship but also provide the whole ship with electricity Our massive steering gear with two hydraulics And.. that wraps up the tour for my ship, Hope you liked it! Cya next time! OH and dont forget to subscribe for more content!

  1. Jeff –are you still with OOCL? I teach a high school from in Global Logistics at Cabrillo High School in Long Beach, CA, USA

  2. why multi radars when modern can have multi ranges and can you do a video on all the com radar & antennas & satellite coms & lightning protection

  3. conditions on board large container ships like this one are ok. on small ship's is horrible, crowded quarters, share cabin and toilet, no regulations to check living conditions of crew….

  4. hi Jeff, how are you? may I know the name for this vessel? I'm working at Indonesian Shipping and as long as my carrier I haven't seen any OOCL Vessel berthing at my port, mostly all of my container's from OOCL Vessel will be discharged at SGSIN and then will be re-load into connecting vessel

  5. I’ve been into aviation all my love and have always been scared of boat rides. But this is sooo interesting! I think I’m starting to get interested in ships now. Subbed! ☺️

  6. I've been in this ship with my husband. For 3 weeks sailing…most of the time spent time in the recreation room???…our room is on the F level…?

  7. Why is it called a compass deck? Is it because it is more or less the only place of the ship where compass works the best?

  8. Jeff: Here's the duty mess
    Me: Kinda bleak but what cha gonna do
    Jeff: And here's the officer mess
    Me: F*&^% you man

  9. can I ask, how your ship crew manage about the waste. I mean the everything like package of the meat, plastic on your fish and more. I just curious, you are not throwing it at the sea right?

  10. 6:05 seems like the spare anchor is in a really weird place…if you ever needed it how could you connect the chains up on the fore station to the anchor down there, or manoeuvre the anchor anywhere from that tight space with stuff all around and above it? its too big and heavy to do anything with it surely…or is it something you'd only ever do in port with cranes and facilities to assist? but in that case why carry it on the ship at all, ports with the appropriate facilities could just keep one or two in a shed on land. idk

  11. Oriental Overseas… that sounds so much like one of those age-old lines from the steam or even sail age. Yet founded in 1969. 🙂

  12. What's the point of a seperate mess for crew and officers? Is this a military ship? Seems weird to seperate civilian crews like that.

  13. Hey Jeff Good job on your awesome channel…..just a question…why are you required to hoist the flag when entering port?

  14. Does the ship constantly move while at sea or do they ever shut down the engines for maintenance etc? And if so, can you jump off the side and swim or go fishing like they sometimes do in the navy?

  15. Thanks for the tour. Your video was very interesting to watch. I do have a question for you, what kind of camera did you use? The clarity was amazing.

  16. I've always been facinated by huge boats and the life at sea. I stumbled on this video and like the blogger. He's concise, direct and easy to follow. Great editing

  17. I grew up in the sf bay area watching the huge container ships in the port of Oakland. I wanted to work on one. Still do. I'm sure it's hard work, but I'd love to live at sea some day

  18. Thanks for this informative video, mate! I'm currently doing research on life at sea on container ships for a book I'm writing, and being able to not only see the different parts of the ship but also have them explained was extremely helpful! How long were you on the ship for?

  19. OOCL Atlanta, build by SAMSUNG. Looks like an awesome ship.
    Thanks Jeffrey for all your professional videos, great work!

  20. Great video, would be better if you could reduce the volume on the background music as sometimes it’s a bit annoying. Anyways great job stay safe

  21. For the engine room sign
    When the co2= carbon dioxide alarm goes off evacuate immediately ok sounds cool
    Should it not be…co= Carbon monoxide
    I would have to believe that if the propellant for drinks and such would not kill me if at all as much as the silent killer would
    6:51 in the vlog

  22. Hey great vlog!
    I'm a cargo surveyor so I spend quite a lot of time on the vessels. Do you ever moor at Haifa, Israel?

  23. Everyone gets their own room on board? Awesome. I worked for a construction company and had to share rooms and I did not like that
