Issue #250 Professional Mariner October/November 2020

Issue #250 Professional Mariner October/November 2020

As COVID-19 gripped the planet in March, a “gangway up” order by the Military Sealift Command confined thousands of civilian mariners to U.S. Navy ships around the world. Six months later, the “civmars” are feeling stressed, neglected and chained to their jobs — if not physically restricted — by coronavirus-related circumstances. In Professional Mariner’s October/November issue, we examine what the mariners are going through and what is being done to address their plight. Coverage for the month also includes the growing use of aerial drones for safer ship inspections; a Great Lakes ballast water dispute that’s pitting American shipping interests against Canada; and the tug-assisted voyage of a World War II destroyer escort down the Hudson River. Plus industry-leading casualty coverage for North America.
