    A lot depends on the charter as to who the information goes to.  The office of course, and often times the charterer gets a report as well.
    These days there are at least daily reports sent to the office with all of that information.  This is all sent via email over the INMARSAT system.
    There are very few RO's out here, so these duties (pretty much all communications duties) fall to the Master, and as a whole, all of them are quite upset at this turn of events as comm duties consume a great deal of their times, especially when the networks aren't working as well as they should.

    How are voyage abstracts or equivalent handled these days (key trip
    log information provided to the main office such as departures,
    arrivals, distance, bunkers, slip, overtime, cargo ops., etc.)? I
    would imagine its done by satellite comm. direct to the main office.
    Is there a radio officer? If not who gets stuck with the collateral
    comm. duties?
