Sorry for the late upload guys. Our ship just crossed the Pacific Ocean for the past 2 weeks so we didn't have any internet. But finally, here it is!!! I promise one more episode will be on time this coming Friday. And hopefully, I'd be able to finish a few more videos so I can upload them before we lose internet again. Thanks for watching!!!

after watching these Vids I reminisce the days while I'm in a cargo ship. even how tired you are as long as you can breathe some fresh air everything is solved. fishing is next while sitting at the bollard. ^_^

I live full time on a small sailing yacht and thought I had a good grasp of life on a boat, but life on ship is an "order of magnitude" more interesting. What a fantastic series you have created.

So after all we are all not created equal as I don't see women along men on ships

BASSiK (18 days ago)
hahahahaahahahahahah u think people hope that there is cargo at discharge ports and just go for it? Thats not how shipping works
Gary Satosky (21 days ago)
Great video very interesting
Ed Ca (26 days ago)
how long does it take to load up the ship and to unload it ? by chance I came across your channel and I like ships , I invest in shipping companies , and I think they are very interesting to know and have in your portfolio ... SALUD AMIGOS greetings from Nevada
Chief MAKOi (25 days ago)
Depends on the port facility.

malaking maintenance talaga... pang malakihan ito... Just like a car, the engine oil, transmission fluid, coolant and power steering has to be changed regularly to keep it in tip top shape...

Chief MAKOi (1 month ago)
Thanks Bill!
I guess after your retirement of sea service , Your next profession with your God gifted skill could fetch you to become a great director and producer in the movie industry ? I truly respect , admire and appreciate your video production ! Thank you very much ! Great job indeed !

I could only wish hahhaa
Awesome ! Fantastic orator ! Very well presented and explained along with clear video photography !

The drone you bought from the china man was it ok,?,considering it was made in china how was the quality
scot Ex scarrier (1 month ago)
@Chief MAKOi ahh ok now i understand the filipino crews im with do pretty much the same with amazon they order stuff and just use 2 offices we have in uk for delivery so when we visit these ports someone from our offices will bring on board..but there are still occasionally we get some dodgey dealers come on board selling fake stuff,,lol..ok thanks for the info
Chief MAKOi (1 month ago)
I actually knew which model I wanted to buy so when a businessman came aboard, we ordered it online (in their version of Amazon). We then agreed on how much he would add on the price for his profit. So I was sure it was legit.
scot Ex scarrier (1 month ago)
@Chief MAKOi lol...i should have known better to ask that silly question considering all the electrical stuff in my house is made in china , the point i was trying to make was i also work on ships and often get some dodgey guys off the street selling fake stuff mobile phones and so on,im sure you have come across those guys on your travels
Chief MAKOi (1 month ago)
All drones are made in China 😊

That entire bay is nasty. I'm not sure if that's an accute brown tide algae bloom, or pollution, or both. I know that certain ports in the United States don't allow for ship ballast water to be dumped into our ports, for the very reason of spreading this type, or even toxic red tide algae blooms. Your vlogs are unusual and professionally made well. Good investment to have purchased a camera drone because it gives another perspective of the ship and its surroundings.
Chief MAKOi (1 month ago)
It's a river so mud flows downstream. Ballast regulations require ballast exchange in the open sea prior to arrival, plus there's the new ballast water treatment plant specifically designed to prevent invasive organisms from being spread to foreign waters.

Hey I live in the U.S. How, if you know, do I become what you guys are? Forgive me I don’t know the exact job title. And are you guys a union?
Chief MAKOi (1 month ago)
Seafarers. In the US, unions are quite strong so I guess that would be your best bet to gather info.

"Dispose of sludge"....poo pipe? Thought that was just dumped in ocean
TheRetiredtrucker (1 month ago)
@Chief MAKOi Ty for clarifying that
Chief MAKOi (1 month ago)
It's different. You're thinking about the Sewage. It still passes through the sewage plant for treatment before being disposed to the sea. "Sludge" is the term for oil residue which is illegal to dispose into the sea.

Robert Lee (1 month ago)
oh man! my third video of yours and I'm just ❤ loving every bit of it 😢 ... not good because man ... I think I would love to be on board! 😢 WRT Duty: I agree, absolutely. Duty comes first. Everything else is secondary. That is true on your ship. It is also true in life. (and for me, doing whatever "maintenance" is required on the ship would not be a chore 😢 ... not good ... oh man ... sigh😢 )
Mike Lowe (1 month ago)
I'm curious about your pay structure. Are you paid by the day, week, month or do you get paid a certain amount for the trip? If you don't get any shore leave, does that entitle you to any overtime pay? Is this negotiated ahead of time by your union, if you're a member of one?

hans2406 (1 month ago)
Hello Chief. Found your channel only yesterday, and I like it. Friend of mine, a Dutchman, like you is also a Chief Engineer, and got a lot of stories out of him. Last year his ship spent nearly a month in the Atlantic, doing nothing, just waiting for business. Were you ever in a situation like that. I come to this question because of your statement of being in harbours for a short time but also for a long time? Thank you.
hans2406 (1 month ago)
@Chief MAKOi Thank you for your answer.
Chief MAKOi (1 month ago)
Yes. That sort of thing happens.

Enjoy your videos Chief. I flew cargo 747's into Shenzhen in the late '90's thru 2007. Was a culture shock for me and the local citizens since I'm an old white guy that's very tall. Got a lot of stares on the sidewalk when out and about. Once in a while we would ride the turbine passenger boat to Hong Kong airport for a crew swap. Safe travels for you my friend.
Chief MAKOi (2 months ago)
Thanks Kevin! They were usually like that in China back then. But nowadays not so much.

What does China Port State do when they inspect your ship?
Chief MAKOi (3 months ago)
They check if our certificates are up to date, all safety, fire-fighting and life-saving equipment are working and other stuff that is required for the ship to be seaworthy.

James Arnold (4 months ago)
My father was born in St. Augustine Florida in 1898. He loved the sea. He joined the AEF in 1917 and after WW1, I found in his military records after he passed away in 1987, he had joined the merchant marines in 1919 to 1922. On Ancestory website, we found a ships crew list, where he had finished a contract, and was sailing back from Norway to Mayport Florida. He rejoined the Army in 1922 until 1949. I have always been curious about what he did on the various ships. I am sure that things were a lot different in 1919, contracts, jobs, ships, etc. Thank you so much for these videos. I wish I could find merchant marine records going that far back. My father was a Menorcan and his ancestors were part of the original landing in New Smyrna in 1777, with our history going back on the Isle of Menorca to 1650. Our coat of arms features a sailing ship. My last name is not "Arnold", although it does start with an "A". This name was a typo when creating my yahoo account. Anyway thanks again, for these great videos. I have grandchildren who might be interested in this profession.

I would hope that some allowances are made to the crew to go ashore anyway. As CHENG, you of course are obligated to stay behind and ensure the work is done. Hoping for the best in your journeys.

@Chief MAKOi If you are ever in Oakland/SF area, let me know. Would love to talk about workforce training onboard. No sales pitch, just great talk. Perhaps my wife can cook up some food. She is from Pampanga.
Chief MAKOi (5 months ago)
That would be great if the terminals took the crew's welfare into account. Unfortunately their focus nowadays is to move cargo as fast as possible for more profit. Just this last voyage our ship crossed the Pacific for 16 days, most of it in rough sea and then we arrived at Kalama, Washington just to stay for 34 hours and then cross the rough Pacific again for 20 days. 🚢🤣
