Monday Reading

Over at Fred Fry International: Maritime Monday 89, Fred begins his third year of blogging and, as usual, covers the waterfront. Check out the photo of the bridge of M/V Ever Safety, which is ginormous.

Fred also has links to some finger-pointing over as to how the Danish merchant ships Danica White got boarded and taken by pirates off Somalia. You begin with being too close to Somalia to start with, and then there are questions of proper manning levels, insufficient watch-keepers, low freeboard, etc, etc. Fred links to one of his own posts where he notes there were only 5 crewmembers for the ship anyway. Which might be okay if she'd stayed 200+ miles off the Somali coast and the circle begins again.
