data, which is then checked by his leading petty officer
and division officer. The record is then submitted to the
engineer officer for his approval and signature. The
daily water account is also a source if information that
is included in reports to higher authority.
The engineer officer uses a Fueling Memorandum
(fig. 2-9) to inform interested parties whenever fuel oil
or diesel oil is received or delivered. Those interested
parties include the commanding officer, the OOD, the
supply officer, and any others concerned, including the
ship being refueled when that is the case.
LIQUID LOAD PLAN
The Liquid Load Plan of the ship is a printed or
locally prepared diagrammatic layout of all the ships
tanks, with each colored to show graphically the
approximate status of fuel, ballast water, reserve
feedwater, and potable water. The oil king prepares and
distributes the plan daily. Copies serve as important aids
to the damage control watch officer, engineer officer,
and EOOW. In large ships, a copy of the plan may be
posted at each repair party control station to provide
information to the repair party officers.
BOAT FUELING RECORD
The Boat Fueling Record is a locally prepared,
daily record of the boat fueling. It is indispensable for
ships carrying or maintaining a large number of boats.
All operating boats should be fueled daily before 0800
to prevent fueling at unusual hours and to ensure
readiness for unscheduled calls. The record for each
boat should indicate (1) the boat number, (2) the fuel
capacity in gallons, (3) the fuel on hand, (4) the
approximate fuel consumption in gallons per hour, and
(5) whether or not the boat was fueled to capacity.
