Germann: It’s time for maritime academies to ‘think small’

Germann: It’s time for maritime academies to ‘think small’

Back in the ‘60s, for those of you who are old enough to remember, the Volkswagen Beetle was “the” small car. Japanese compacts were a distant second, and many brands we know today did not even import into the U.S. until years later. Along with having the most popular small car, VW’s ad campaign was brilliant — “Think Small.” Their idea was simple; basic transportation need not be expensive.

Murphy: Mariners need more hands-on Rules of the Road training

Murphy: Mariners need more hands-on Rules of the Road training

I would like to share a common problem that keeps showing up again and again in the “sim,” as we call it. We all are supposed to know all the Rules of the Road all the time. Or at least 90 percent of them, as that is what’s required to pass as a deck officer. But how many of those rules actually apply to our lives?
