    logo11 Shore leave

    In the July 2015 edition of Maritime Reporter and Engineering News, you can find my article entitled "Shore leave". In the article, I discuss the impediments imposed by some waterfront facilities to crew members on vessels docked there in obtaining access to shore and to third parties gaining access to those vessels. Congress recently directed that maritime facilities must provide such access in a timely manner and at no cost to the individual. The US Coast Guard has proposed regulations to implement that directive.
