Magazine Description

In this issue

Duck boats have a long and checkered history as excursion vessels, leaving many fatalities in their wake. The capsizing of Stretch Duck 7 on Missouri's Table Rock Lake in July, at a cost of 17 lives, has amplified calls for stricter regulation. In its October/November issue, Professional Mariner examines what led to the tragedy and what the future holds for these amphibious vehicles. In towing, the Olmsted Locks and Dam is finally ready to open to commercial traffic, ending 30 years of delays and lost profits for the inland barge industry. Correspondent Brian Gauvin tours the Ohio River site and tracks why the process took so long. Additional coverage includes a look at fuel cells and the potential they hold for the future of marine propulsion; the possible impact of new steel and aluminum tariffs on U.S. shipbuilders; and incorrect AIS data posing a threat to the nation's towing vessels.
