    Changing a Cruise Ship's 7.5 Tonne Crankshaft

    I had to pull my L28 out to replace the crank last year and I was annoyed. If I had to pay for this exercise, I would have been more annoyed:

    I wonder what a spun bearing on a motor this size sounds like?

    So many chainblocks. And interesting they have a "Final" Risk Analysis (instead of "Fatal") which is followed by a "Last Minute" Risk Analysis.
    Is it crazy how saying sentences backwards creates backwards sentences saying how crazy it is?

    Havent watched it all just skipped thru it, but the Risk Analysis should be updated as the job goes on. Ie stop work add the new rick or changed method etc.

    I got sent a email about a conveyor change in a bucket elevator that went wrong. It is simply a rubber belt with buckets bolted to it, they had removed the old belt no issues, had pulled the new belt over the head drum, and had concerns about it freewheeling, when enough weight was over it, so they decided to use the inching drive in conjunction with the winch, this wasnt on the Risk analysis nor was one done when changing the method. What happened is they overloaded the winch rope witch snapped and caused the belt to fall down the side they lifted it up. No one was injured, damage was limited to the new belt. And this belt change was done by a conveyor mob

    I am aware of the process, it was the terminology that I found interesting.
