Newsletter – contributions requested

clip_image013 In an effort to keep the maritime community timely informed as to what the various government agencies are doing for and to us, I have published an electronic blog and newsletter for the past nine years. The email, blog and newsletter are unique in that they almost always provide the reader with direct access to the government document(s) at issue. I have been absorbing the costs of the website, the email distribution system, subscriptions, etc. Those costs have been rising and are expected to continue to rise. It is therefore requested that you, my long-suffering readers, make a modest voluntary contribution to help defray these costs. For those addicted to ecommerce, contributions may be sent to my PayPal account (dennis.l.bryant@gmail.com); otherwise, checks payable to “Bryant’s Maritime Consulting” will be gratefully accepted when sent to the address listed below. Many thanks.

    logo11 Liquefaction

    In the October 2018 edition of Maritime Reporter and Engineering News, you can find my article entitled "Liquefaction". The article discusses the shocking number of bulk carriers that have suddenly and catastrophically been lost at sea in recent years. The known or suspected cause of these tragic losses has been liquefaction of cargo. Despite efforts of the IMO, insurers, and trade associations, these losses continue. Installing a longitudinal bulkhead in each cargo hold would reduce the risk of liquefaction and the consequent loss of ships, cargo, and crews.
