I. INCIDENT BRIEF
SITUATION: At approx 1428Q the Sandy Hook Pilot onboard the M/T SITEAM ADVENTURER
ordered "all stop" and there was no response from the propulsion system.
After calling down to the engine room,
it appeared that the engine room and pilothouse telegraph were not synchronized.
I/O later confirmed with master that the telegraph system was set in pilothouse control
of the propulsion system as opposed to the engine room having to respond to each order command.
Pilot reported he was able to control propulsion,
by directly talking to the engineroom via sound powered phone.
