Injuries and fatalities during lifeboat drills are raising concerns across the maritime industry, undermining the confidence of seafarers whose lives and careers hang in the balance. In its May issue, Professional Mariner examines the training and equipment shortcomings that are contributing to the problem. Closing a chapter in the El Faro saga, a Coast Guard investigation board holds its final round of hearings, with sometimes-emotional testimony focusing on the decisions and procedures that led to the loss of the ship and crew. We also look at a Coast Guard proposal to raise the damage threshold for reporting a marine casualty, a move applauded by vessel owners but one that many say does not go far enough.
