Minimum Manning Scales

Niether Maersk nor Denmark are Saints when it comes to setting minimums.

Remember as charterer's rep on a Maersk VLCC with a 14 man crew declaring it unsafe for lightering. The operation took five hours with The Master alone on the bridge and one man with a broken arm. Two of the ABs were giving lip to an over worked 3rd. Mate.

Charterer put the ship off hire until five ABs were flown out from Copenhagen.

Maersk has huge influence in Denmark due to its size. Go figure
