Issue #239 Professional Mariner October/November 2019

Issue #239 Professional Mariner October/November 2019

Record high water this spring and early summer took a heavy toll on barge traffic in the heartland, with river closures preventing key crops from reaching market. In its October-November issue, Professional Mariner takes stock of the damage as logistics networks struggle to catch up. We also listen in as Capt. Marc Deglinnocenti talks with Richard Balzano, MarAd’s second in command, about the future of autonomous vessels in the U.S. — are merchant mariner jobs at stake? Additional coverage includes a look at the difficult recovery of oil from a tanker torpedoed by a U-boat off Long Island during World War II, and the advent of hands-free mooring technology at locks along the St. Lawrence Seaway. Plus Kelly Sweeney’s Mariner’s Notebook and full maritime casualty coverage for the U.S. and Canada.
