Q.Is the helicopter landing hatch mandatory to be marked with ship's name?

Answer 1 Answers

I have not seen hatch so far marked with ship's name. Only letter H for helicopter to know the hatch he can land. Details of marking as per ICS guide for helicopter landing.

Any helicopter landing on ship can see its name from other places. Its written in aft, on both sides of bow and both sides of bridge wings. I dont see a need to be marked on hatch cover.
