Issue #234 Professional Mariner May 2019

Issue #234 Professional Mariner May 2019

It was another difficult voyage for Polar Star to Antarctica last winter, with power outages, a failed shaft seal and a fire plaguing America’s only heavy icebreaker. In its May issue, Professional Mariner covers the latest breakdowns as the Coast Guard awaits more help at the poles from newbuilds. We also look back – and ahead – at the Automated Mutual-Assistance Vessel Rescue System, better known as AMVER, which has saved thousands of mariners over six decades and continues to add participants from around the world. Coverage this month also includes an autonomous first for the U.S. Navy as it sends a crewless trimaran from San Diego to Hawaii and back; growing pressure to eliminate hydrofluorcarbons (HFCs) as onboard fire suppressants; and an ambitious plan by Washington State Ferries to add 16 vessels to its fleet over the next 20 years. Plus Capt. Kelly Sweeney’s Mariner’s Notebook and industry-leading casualty coverage for the U.S. and Canada.
