Yost, Cody 10/21/13 Vessel (1) Lady Serra- Bulk Carrier Vessel (2) Ocean Crescent- Multi-purpose Heavy Lift I chose two ships, one being on the Galveston ship channel at pier forty-one which was a bulk carrier, and the other one on the Houston ship channel which was a multi-purpose heavy lift ship. The first ship I went on was on a Galveston port named the Lady Serra and was a bulk carrier and was self-trimmed, double hulled, and wide hatched. It was a Turkish ship and was registered in Istanbul, and built in Jiangsu, China. The operator was Deval Transport A.S. Its length over all was right at six hundred feet long and its gross tonnage was twenty-thousand. It was loading up on wheat grain when I was aboard but it carriers all types of bulk such as coal. Its cruising speed is thirteen knots. It had two fire stations. The majority of the fire extinguishers they carried were ABC type. There were two SCBA’s on this vessel. There was one emergency gear locker. It had rocket parachute flares in it. There was also four chemical protection suits along with a fire protection suit and an oil spill kit including sand, cement, and saw dust. It had four off shore bow lines and two fore spring lines. It also had four off shore stern lines and two aft spring lines. The lines were synthetic braided from foe to aft.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
