In the ships, the correct estimation of ROB of fuel is a known to be a dicey affair. Not just the ship has to be upright, even keel and in calm waters but the correctness of the calibration of the Tank’s sounding tables play the most important jobs.

It is ironical that in the era of computer simulations, ships which now are coming to sea(especially the Chinese made), has incorrect sounding tables, which leads to potential mistakes in the voyage calculations and the Fuel ROB disputes.

So how could the seafarers safeguard their interests so that the blame does not come on them in case of such situations and they do not face any operational issues as well?
