The Interface Sheet
In this sheet, the user enters the manual entries, which include
The titles for the Ullage Report such as: voyage number, cargo grade
for that segregation, the v.e.f., the drafts at LPs, the B/L details
and the cargo details such as: measured ullages, measured temperatures,
API/Density, calculation tables, etc.
Each segregation has a sub-menu for appending data to VEF record and master database, for step-by-step increment/decrement. etc.
Constant, Fuel, FW, Ballast
This sheet is for input of data for constant, fuel, fresh water and ballast.
This sheet is the charterer's ullage report for
tank ship. The titles automatically change according to the type
of cargo and calculation tables selected.
Trim and Stability
This sheets provides the results for trim and
stability in tabular and chart presentation forms. SN's unique
algoritm for computing actual draft is included here.
The stress page provides in tabular and chart
presentations, the results of the longitudinal stress calculations for
bending moments and shearing forces.
In this page, hydrostatic calculation is featured
for input of drafts at the gauges and at the marks. The vessel's
contours have been fed in so that the drafts "on the other side" can be
ascertained when only "one side" drafts have been taken. Just
enter the list and the drafts on one side to obtain accurate drafts on
the opposite side. Every tanker man knows that it is practically
impossible to read all six drafts at most tanker jetties.
The program also provides the facility for
projecting the draft gauges to the draft marks. This is useful
when the drafts at the marks cannot be taken - for well known reasons
such as poor visibility conditions or the need to complete cargo
calculations as quickly as possible.
Accumulation of sludge can be determined by the value of the
"Constant". This being the difference in the displacement as per the
draft marks and the displacement as per the manual inputs of ullages,
This is the charterer's standard form for
OBQ/ROB. The results are computed for the measured dip and trim
and automatically reflected in the associated Ullage Report and Port
This sheet is similar to the OBQ/ROB sheet.
The oil+water and water only quantities are computed for the measured
ullages and interface, corrected for trim and heel. The results
are reflected in the associated Ullage Report and Port Log.
LOP B/L Figures
This charterer's standard form is presented to the
terminal or shipper to protest ship and shore figures
discrepancy. Only the titles are manual entries, all other
figures being directly imported from the associated ullage
report. The titles from this page are exported to other forms in
the workbook this keeping with the fundamental theme to reduce manual
entries to the barest minimum.
The charterer's standard form protesting delays incurred during the period of port stay.
LOP Free Water
No manual entries required on this sheet at all
other than any remarks (for example: "Traces found in tanks 3S and Stbd
Slops"). The figures for free water and the respective tanks are
auto-updated to this sheet.
LOP Short Load
A standard charterer's form to protest an under-load condition.
This is useful if a dead-freight statement is not issued.
LOP No Papers
Another charterer's form that is auto-updated with
figures in readiness for issuing a protest for a situation where the
vessel is forced to sail without issuance of cargo papers by the
terminal or shippers.
This form is used when a protest letter has to be
issued on a subject that is not covered by the forms above. The
user enters the titles and text. The other legal "jargon" is
This form is the charterer's deadfreight
statement standard form. Much of the data is auto-updated from
relevant cells in other sheets or simply by the click of a button.
The charterer's standard form for reporting voyage conditions.
This is the charterer's standard form for discharge pumping conditions. If
online facility is provided as in the case of the sample ship here, the
program will stop each hour, on the hour, with sound alerts and present
a dialog box for the user to enter the required data such as manifold
pressure, pump discharge pressure, bulk pumping rate, etc.
The arrival and departure cargo
details in this sheet are updated at a click of a button. Other
details such as times and dates have to be manually entered.
This sheet has a record of the vessel's last 30
cargoes and computes and presents the V.E.F. for the last 10, last 20
and last 30 cargoes. Independent surveyors who are usually
charged with the responsibility of determining the v.e.f. are very
happy with a presentation of the previous cargoes in this way.
Charterer's standard form for Notice of Readiness. Appropriate fields in the worksheet are updated from custom input boxes.
CTRL-M (In Lieu of a Dedicated Menu)
Keying in CTRL-M from anywhere in the application will bring up a dialog box with some special funtions.
