The rollout of Subchapter M has come with a few bumps for towing interests, including what some operators see as discrepancies in manning requirements for similar vessels in different parts of the country. In its March issue, Professional Mariner examines what is happening and what is being done to smooth the regulatory transition. In the world of cybersecurity, a new survey is sounding the alarm about a false sense of preparedness among maritime companies in the U.S., with many facing “severe fallout” in the event of an attack. We also take a look at the long-awaited enactment of the Vessel Incidental Discharge Act, which replaces a patchwork of state regulations with a federal blueprint; a new lawsuit that continues the fight over pilotage rates set by the Coast Guard for the Great Lakes; and a call to overhaul the global STCW regime, the scope of which is being overtaken by technological change. Plus full maritime casualty coverage for the U.S. and Canada.
