Commercial Fishing Vessel: Bilge Pumps, Bilge Piping, and Dewatering Systems Mobile App
"The Commercial Fishing Vessel: Bilge Pumps, Bilge Piping, and Dewatering Systems mobile app provides an easy to use checklist that members of the fishing industry can use to help ensure compliance with federal regulations applicable to the operation of uninspected commercial fishing vessels.
How does it work?
In the fishing industry, all uninspected vessels must be equipped with a bilge pump or portable pumps that are in good condition, and have bilge piping capable of draining any watertight compartment, other than tanks and small buoyancy compartments, under all conditions. Large spaces, such as an engine room, must be fitted with more than one suction line for pumping out larger amounts of bilge water. Instead of using paper checklists when inspecting the wear and tear on your automatic bilge pumps, discharge hoses, suction lines, check valves and other areas of commercial fishing vessels, the app generates a checklist that is easily accessible using a smartphone or tablet.
