Tuesday. Not "hump day." Not "blue Monday." Just Tuesday. Enjoy.
For a week's worth of reading in one post, there's Maritime Monday 158. Fred has photos of some South African Marine Corporation vessels and even has coverage of a "stink" ship. And maybe 100 or so other links.
Admiral Allen, Commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard discusses the Coast Guard role in fighting pirates. More than you might have thought...
A little aircraft carrier flight deck warning.
Where is 5th Fleet? a shipbuilding message. After you read it, you might note my comment that sometimes a whole lotta cheaper is better.
And, of course, Lex is a great read any day of the week.
