The Inouye: The Largest American-Made and American-Crewed Containership Ever Built

The Inouye: The Largest American-Made and American-Crewed Containership Ever Built

I was honored to be present in South Philadelphia on June 30 to witness the christening of the largest container ship ever built in the United States. It was built by Philly Shipyards for shipping company, Matson, Inc., and was named for the former Hawaii senator, war hero, and long-standing maritime champion Daniel K. Inouye.   At a time when the U.S.

Mariners Who Made the Ultimate Sacrifice

Mariners Who Made the Ultimate Sacrifice

Ask folks unfamiliar with the United States Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA) where it’s graduates can be found and they will likely tell you on a cargo ship plying the deep oceans, or in some exotic port on the far side of the globe. And they would be, for the most part correct.   However, most don’t realize that no other federal service academy offers the career options of Kings Point.

East Coast Storm Sweeps 70 Containers Overboard

As many as 73 stray cargo containers pose threat to mariners off North Carolina.   The Coast Guard is warning mariners of navigation hazards after about 70 cargo containers fell off of a cargo ship Saturday night, about 17 miles off Oregon Inlet, North Carolina.   The cargo ship Maersk Shanghai contacted watchstanders at Sector North Carolina’s command center via VHF-FM marine radio channel 16

Op/Ed: Safeguarding Our Marine Transportation System

The U.S. Coast Guard has the enduring responsibility to safeguard the MTS and enable the uninterrupted flow of maritime commerce.    Our great Nation’s vast network of navigable waterways, deepwater ports and protected harbors are natural economic assets and provide unfettered access to the world’s two largest oceans.

What Happens when Commercial and Recreational Vessels Face Off?

What Happens when Commercial and Recreational Vessels Face Off?

A generally sound assumption to make is that many recreational boaters operating power boats and sailing vessels are not very familiar with the maritime Rules of the Road that their professional mariner counterparts understand and adhere to. The unfortunate consequence is a wide array of marine casualties and incidents from collisions, allisions, capsizings, groundings, wake damage

USCG Releases Final Statement on El Faro Sinking

The U.S. Coast Guard has released its final action memo on the loss of the S.S. El Faro and its 33 crew members during a 2015 hurricane near Crooked Island, Bahamas.   In the final action memo, Commandant Adm.

Hudson River Tales: PAWSA Pauses Parking Project

When marine safety collides with environmental advocacy and non-maritime business interests, the discussion can be contentious, confusing and cumbersome.   In June 2016, the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) opened a public comment period regarding new anchorage zones in the Hudson River; usually a rather low-key set of issues. This proved different.

Seaweed: Fuel of the Future?

Scientists envision a future where fuel made from seaweed grown at large-scale offshore farms will be used to provide green power for homes and vehicles.   Now with help from U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) funding, researchers are working toward making that scenario a reality.

OP/Ed: Why I Became a Member of the OSVDPA

A new voice for today’s workboat professional emerges.   As the captain of an OSV, I’ve spent a great deal of my life waiting. Waiting at the dock, at anchor, at the 500. Wherever one could wait, I have waited there. I can wait with the best of them. Now, just out of habit, I’ll wait when doing so is not required or helpful.

Sailing Ships: Ship of the Future?

Sailing Ships: Ship of the Future?

For as long as there has been a need to transport cargo there has been a maritime industry. Throughout that history both owners and mariners have worked to devise ways of saving costs, making faster transits, and carrying more cargo.   In 1819 the Steam Ship Savannah made maritime history by being the first steamship to cross the Atlantic Ocean
