What should the ship personnel do in the event of failure to communicate to the barge or shore during bunkering (nobody on deck and radio and barge crew is not getting back on radio)?

The ship's crew should try to communicate the supplying facility by alternative means, f.e different VHF channel (16), or get on board of the barge, to clarify the reason for communication failure. The bunkering must be stopped until the until safe communications are established.
