Optimization, Maintenance, Lifeboat


This research was motivated by the maintenance of lifeboats on board, which was less than optimal. It was proven when the Marine Inspector checked the lifeboat on board in the Java Sea on March 20, 2022, after the ship departed from Makassar Port to Tanjung Perak Port, 2 of the 12 lifeboats on board could not be hibobbed, so the ship received Non-Conformity (NC). The purpose of this study is to find out how the implementation of lifeboat maintenance at MV Dobonsolo, the obstacles encountered in carrying out the treatment, and how efforts need to be made to overcome these obstacles. The research method used in the preparation of this thesis is qualitative descriptive by using triangulation (observation, interviews, and documentation) in data collection techniques, as well as using data reduction, data presentation, and conclusion drawing in data analysis techniques. The research found that lifeboat maintenance at MV Dobonsolo was not optimal. The obstacles encountered include a large number of lifeboats, but the maintenance time is less due to the limited daily working hours of the Senior Third Officer, the crew does not understand the lifeboat maintenance procedures, and the unavailability of spare parts on board. Efforts that need to be made include dividing the task of lifeboat maintenance between Senior Third Officer and Junior Third Officer, conducting safety meetings and training the crew regarding the maintenance of lifeboats according to procedures, and asking for spare parts from the company
