Josh Jambon Familiar With Safety of Life at Sea Treaty

Josh Jambon of Jambon Marine Services complies with all safety standards of the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, or SOLAS.  An international maritime treaty, SOLAS requirements apply to signatory flag states, ensuring that ships registered by signatories are in compliance with safety standards of construction, equipment and operation.  Current SOLAS standards were set in May 1980.  162 states are contracted to comply by the current International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea standards, covering around 99 percent of all merchant ships in the world.  The first SOLAS standards arose in 1914 after the Titanic disaster, mandating minimum numbers of lifeboats, radio contacts, and emergency procedures and equipment.  However, the first treaty was delayed due to the beginning of World War I.  The 1929 and 1948 standard versions were adopted.

The 1960 standards as set forth by the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea treaty were a step forward, with regulations dealing with modern technology in maritime shipping, while the 1974 Convention adopted procedures which enabled SOLAS to take effect more efficiently.  Josh Jambon recognizes the 1974 standards, updated and amended since that time, as per its amendment to use metric units only in 1975, and the 1988 changes to replace Morse code with the Global Maritime Distress Safety System.

Josh Jambon of Jambon Marine Services abides by all International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea requirements, endeavoring to maintain compliance with all safety standards as they pertain to construction, equipment and operation.  Chapter Five of the treaty manual applies to all sea vessels, whether they are private yachts, small local craft, commercial vessels or international cruises.  The Global Maritime Distress Safety System requires radio equipment, emergency radio beacons and transponders for search and rescue for all international voyages.  All planned sea voyages are required to assess weather forecasts, tides, crew capability and other possible threats to navigation.  Vessel masters must also render aide and assistance to vessels in distress and have mastery of the use of lifesaving signals and messages.  

Jambon Marine Services and owner Josh Jambon look forward to the latest generation of platform service vessels with diesel/LNG transport capabilities.  An LNG tanker is especially designed for the transport of liquefied natural gas.  The first LNG tanker Methane Pioneer departed from the Louisiana Gulf coast in 1959, delivering liquefied natural gas to the United Kingdom.  Today, LNG ships which carry 9,400,000 cubic feet of LNG sail across the world’s seas on a current fleet of 193.  Typical LNG carriers concentrate the tanks along the centerline of the vessel, with ballast tanks, cofferdams and voids surrounding the center tanks.  A pump tower hangs from the top of each tank, where the main cargo pumps and a spray pump is used for pumping out LNG for fuel or for cooling down cargo tanks.

Offshore support vessels, known in the vernacular as OSVs, are a specialized form of maritime ship customized for use by the offshore oil and gas industry.  Proliferation of the offshore support vessel market is driven by demand for oil.  High oil prices encourage energy companies to increase their offshore oil and gas drilling projects, and therefore the need for offshore support vessels rises.  The search for, called exploration and production (E&P), new undersea drill sites for untapped sources of oil and gas are the first stop in the ultimate values assigned to fossil energy.  Complex, fraught with dangers and expensive to execute, offshore drill projects are a devastating loss both economically and perhaps environmentally if the effort fails.  Offshore platform service vessels must be customized and economical.

Josh Jambon: The Qualities That All Entrepreneurs Must Possess

Josh Jambon is an experienced entrepreneur who has been involved in the creation and success of businesses in a variety of sectors throughout his career. Though he is now involved in the oil and gas sector, he also has experienced previous successes in marine supply and property development. In achieving this, it has become apparent that he possesses a number of key qualities that all entrepreneurs must share if they are to achieve their goals in business.

Determination

Most entrepreneurs are very familiar with the word “no”. It is a word that you may hear often in your attempts to establish a business or bring a new product to the market and it can have negative effects on your drive and ambition to achieve something beyond the scope of the average person. Successful entrepreneurs are both realistic in their ambitions and able to recognize when their ideas can succeed, making them determined to see them through until they reach their potential.

The Thirst For Knowledge

Stagnation is the enemy of the true entrepreneur, as it means a failure to adapt to changing trends and the inability to innovate in-line with the needs of customers. In order to avoid stagnation, entrepreneurs must dedicate themselves to continued learning and should take advantage of any educational opportunities that are presented to them.

The Desire To Win

“I truly love to win in business,” says Josh Jambon. “Money is not what drives me. Winning is.” This is an attitude that budding entrepreneurs need to adopt, as the sole pursuit of money can blind them to the advancements their competitors are making or the potential issues that clients may have with the company. Winning, in business terms, involves staying ahead of your competition and ensuring the service you provide to customers is so good that they won’t consider using other suppliers.

Josh Jambon a Discerning Lover of Scotch

As opposed to the genuine Scotch whisk(e)y which aficionados like Josh Jambon may prefer, American whisk(e)y must conform to a variety of regulations, depending on the product being produced.  Bourbon comes from fermented mash which is not less than 51% corn and whose distillation proof cannot be higher than 160.  Bourbon must be matured in new oak barrels, while blended American whisk(e)y must be made with a minimum of 20% whiskey aged two or more years.  Tennessee whisk(e)y is much the same except it is charcoal filtered, so it cannot be labeled as a bourbon.

Scotch whisky actually made in Scotland and preferred by Scotch purists like Josh Jambon is manufactured according to legal requirements, so that connoisseurs like Josh Jambon may be guaranteed the real article.  It must be made from malted barley, which distinguishes it from other commercial versions made from wheat and rye.  Real Scotch whisky has five categories: single malt, single grain, blended malt, blended grain and blended.  Every variety must be aged in oak barrels for a minimum of three years, and age statements on every bottle must state the age of the youngest whisky in the product.  The Exchequer Rolls of Scotland first mention Scotch whiskey in 1495, distilled by Friar John Cor at Lindores Abbey.   

Today’s Scotch whisky with the fine tastes and aromas which distinguish it to Scotch lovers like Josh Jambon, is regulated by the Scotch Whisky Regulations of 2009, which state that true Scotch whisky must be produced at a Scotland distillery from water and malted barley which has been rendered there into a mash, has been fermented there with endogenous enzyme systems with yeast only.  The true product must be distilled at 190 proof or less and must have been completely matured in a warehouse in Scotland in oak (185 US gallons) for a minimum of three years.  The finished Scotch whisky product must retain the color, aroma and taste of the raw materials used in its production and must contain no added substances beyond water and caramel coloring.  Genuine Scotch whisky must have a minimum proof of at least 80 US.

As a connoisseur of genuine Scotch whiskey, Josh Jambon would certainly have educated himself regarding the information included on a genuine Scotch label, such as production, age, bottling and ownership.  On a proper Scotch whisky label a complete listing of the malt or grain whiskies is given.  The term single cask would indicate that the bottle comes from one cask only.
