The debate over compliance with salvage and firefighting requirements at U.S. ports is heating up, with a new report criticizing the effectiveness of vessel response plans for Charleston and Long Beach-Los Angeles. But according to the U.S. Coast Guard, simulation-based evaluations in 16 ports – including those two harbors – found all of the plans to be satisfactory. In its September issue, Professional Mariner gets a line on both sides of the argument. Coverage for the month also includes the International Maritime Organization's first steps to regulate autonomous shipping; Metal Shark's acquisition of Horizon Shipbuilding and its steel-hull expertise; Washington State Ferries' move to convert its three largest vessels to hybrid propulsion; and the evolution of deck cranes to take on new challenges offshore. Plus the latest U.S. and Canadian casualty news.
