On this episode of What's Going On With Shipping, Sal Mercogliano - Chair of the Department of History, Criminal Justice and Political Science, former merchant mariner, and adjunct professor of Maritime Industry Policy at the US Merchant Marine Academy - examines the National Transportation Safety Board's Report on the capsizing of the roll-on/roll-off vehicle carrier MV Golden Ray in St. Simons Sound, Georgia on September 8, 2019. Sal breaks down the events of the day, looks at the evidence presented to the NTSB, their analysis and questions their final determination that laid the fault squarely on the shoulders of the ship's Chief Mate. There were many issues at play and while the NTSB looked at the who, what, where, and how, they failed to address the biggest question WHY?

Finally!!! The last section of the ship was removed from the site and taken to port for final salvage.
