The watch keeper column on the Crew page specifically refers to the 'Watchkeeper Yes|No' on the time sheet top right. The feedback we have had from Cayman Islands on this is as follows;



When it comes to our HOR timesheets onboard, there is the option to select watchkeeper or not watchkeeper. What constitutes a watchkeeper? Does it only concern bridge navigational watchkeepers, or does it also concern lookouts, anchor watches, security watches in port and engineer watches.



The ‘principles of safe manning’ consider the capability to maintain safe navigational, engineering and radio watches in accordance with regulation VIII/2 of the 1978 STCW Convention, as amended, and also maintain general surveillance of the ship; so yes to all.
