lmao

Ok, as promised im back in singapore. It was a hard trip until now. Firstly, it tooks us DAYS to leave Europe because Southhampton is such a BUM port. You ALWAYS get delay there. We are 1 week behind schedule now, and already have to leave out some ports. Oh well, I'll still be going to Pusan, Korea, which should be interesting.
I hate Koreans. Our ship was built by Hyundai Heavy Industries. It's nice and big. But there are a lot of faults. For instance: There is no grease on ANY screw on bord. It takes a lot of man-power to loosen any pipe. Fucking hard work. In those times you can only hear me cursing on koreans. Damn them.
Then our main problem: Our main engine. It's a MAN B&W model, which normally stands for quality. Normally. But since the koreans refused to let MAN build it, they just got the plans and built it themselves. With shitty steel. Who the fuck cares, you say? Ill give u an example.
The engine is 15 meters high, 90 000 Horsepower. Big mofo. 12 cylinders, each has 3 main fuel pipes where the heavy fuel oil ( the oil has to be over 80 degrees, otherwise u could pave a street with it)is injected at 800 bars of pressure into the cylinder. So much for the information.
Now here's the story. I went to bed at 22:00 after 11 hours of work and some beersr. At about 1:00 in the morning i get a call. Get down into the Engine Room. FAST.
What happened? one of the fuel pipe ripped apart. The fucking oil was splashing all over, coming out with gigantig pressure and over 90 degrees. Emergency stop. We had to manually close all the fucking fuel valves to the engine. Then the cleaning process. This fucking oil is like tar. To clean it u use marine diesel oil, shit you wouldnt even dare put in your car. So we clean dirty dirt, with less dirty dirt, and then try to wipe that away. At 6 in morning we were about done. Exchange the fuel pipe and we started up again. Just about when the engine hit 85 RPM WHAM. another fucking pipe. Fuck. I was only cursing by then. The following night 3 more bust. Before Singapore we only had 1 more spare pipe left. We ordered some ORIGINAL QUALITY pipes, which we hopefully will get. I just about hate everything about this ship. The accomodations are ok, but the walls are too fucking thin. I hear when my neighbour farts. I HATE KOREA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Most of the welding on bord they did is also shit. Nothing fits, nothing really works 100% correctly. All ive been doing is correcting their fucking mistakes. But everyone buys from the Koreans because it's so cheap. No wonder. Fucking idiots.
Had to let that out.
Ill be back soon!

Back in Singapore.
And oh boy, i hate the fucking Koreans even more now.
We went to Pusan, Korea. I had to steer the ship into the harbor. They unloaded 6500 Containers within fucking 1 day, and then we had to leave again. Always at like 3 am or some shit. And i had to get up and steer the mofo again. Then we anchored infront of Pusan, 1 day later we went back in. 1 day later we had to leave again.
I had a fucking 18 Hour work day, plus 3 hours of sleep over 4 days. Very nice.
Korea sucked my balls. Also literally. The only highlight of the stay in korea. oh. And if you think the bitch was korean, think again.She was Japanese if i remember correctly. Koreans are all ugly and smell (actually STINK) like garlic. I mean BIG TIME. I had to spend 2 minutes of my life with the Pusan Pilot in our elevator. OH MY FUCKING GOD. I mean i love garlic. But that was the worst smell EVER.... sheeeesh..... Also went to Shang Hai, Taiwan and some other Chinese ports... dont remember which ones, was either drunk, sleeping or pissed off.
You know how hard it is to steer a 350 m long vessel, when the pilot is giving jibberish orders?
Ill give you some examples:
Korean Pilot: POTT TEH!
What is this person trying to tell you? Potty? does he have to use the potty? Hm no.
"Port Ten" is the correct command.
Korean Pilot: TREE POR PIE!!!!!!!!
Ok. What - the - fuck?
Translation: Three - four- five
or 345, heading in degrees.
You see, its not easy being a sailor. Especially when you are on a NEW ship and everything is falling apart. -_-

Singapore seems to be the only half-way civilized country in Asia.
The rest are vermin. No. Really. Vermin. Someone should hire an exterminator.
Chinese first, please.

Please don't think I'm racist, but listen to the next story I have to tell:

Ok, in the Front part of the ship, right before the first row of container rests the "wavebreaker". It's just a big metal shield to protect the containers from oncoming waves, as the name says.
Between the containers and this wavebreaker, you have about 1 m of space, nice and dark, cozy, you can hide in there pretty well.




Or you can take a shit.
Yes. You heard me.
It seems to be a custom of the Chinese harbor workers to take a shit there. I was on the forward station, pulling up the headlines with a winch, when suddenly the wind shifted and the stench sort of knocked me off my socks.
Guess who had to clean it.
Maybe you can understand my anger. Sort of. Don't judge me wrong.

THEY TOOK A SHIT RIGHT ON THE FUCKING SHIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WHY!?!?!?!?!?! theres toilets on deck everywhere.... WHY
Next time we enter a chinese port, the chinese harbor workers wont see a foreline sticking out of that man-whole. Theyll see my ass just hanging there, SHITTING ON THEIR HEADS.

Ok, im done again, i luv u guys
