Thank you for making this video. The need for a re-think on today's Captains having all the responsibility but practically no authority in crucial parts of a ship's operation is a must. An amendment in the ISM Code should be aimed at. Instead of that code just saying, "the Master has the over riding authority on matters of safety and environment protection", it should say something like, "the Master and the Ship Owner (that is, the entity/entities exercising technical,operational and commercial control of the ship) shall together, in equal measure, have the authority and responsibility for the safety of lives and the marine environment and which shall be exercised through the master. The responsibility to defend against criminal and/or civil suits filed by States due to accidents involving the vessel that result in loss of life or serious injury or damage to the marine environment shall rest with all parties to the common maritime adventure i.e. shipowners/operators, charterers to the extent of each's contributory acts that led to the accident as determined by the Court of Law under whose jurisdiction the suits arise."

Wishful thinking?

Opinion Should the Captain go down with the ship?

by Melvin Mathews - published on 10 November 2020

At one point, the Captain on the Ship while being highly respected, also carried great responsibility and had the ultimate accountability for everything on board. But this respect, responsibility and accountability has not come overnight, or just when the Captain wears his four stripes.

Opinion If you facilitate 90% of the world's trade, would you influence change?

by Melvin Mathews - published on 1 December 2020

Without a shadow of doubt, shipping is a key enabler of our current way of life and the globalized world we live in today. The irony is that the average person is unaware of the significance or contribution of the shipping industry and how much we rely on ships working without disruption

Opinion Pilot: “Adviser” and/or “Specialist”?

by Ed Verbeek - published on 27 April 2021

I have had the privilege of being at quite a number of meetings, conferences and seminars, sometimes representing The Netherlands, but mostly representing the Netherlands pilots. I have had many discussions about the role of pilots and pilot organisations, which lead me to write an article “What is the added value of pilotage?”, published in the February 2020 issue of Seaways.
