In the absence of the Captain:

  • Chief Mate is taking over command and not allowed to disembark
  • Chief Mate has to take over Master's responsibilities with regards to reporting and communication
  • Vessel can not sail (as per Minimum Safe Manning certificate).
  • In case of emergency at berth/terminal vessel has to inform Port Captain regarding its crew status and conduct necessary maneuver to safe anchorage under command of Chief Mate
