Magazine Description

In this issue

LNG is gaining traction as a marine fuel in North America, bringing with it new safety challenges involving vapor control and firefighting. In its May issue, Professional Mariner examines what mariners need to know to deal with LNG, and what training schools and vessel operators are doing to prepare them for it. In the world of towing, we go west to profile the evolution of articulated tug-barges (ATBs) on the Pacific Coast, then head north to Alaska, where we ride with Cook Inlet Tug & Barge as crews employ novel ice-clearing strategies to keep commerce moving. Our May issue also focuses on President Trump's plan for new user fees along the nation's inland waterways; new testing for mariners for oxycodone and other semi-synthetic opioids; and a new study to determine if environmentally acceptable lubricants (EALs) are linked to an increase in stern tube bearing failures. Turn to Professional Mariner for these industry stories and more, including full maritime casualty coverage.
