Aloha Joe. This is a great topic and I and my colegues on Oaho are working on a project for the commercial and Navy right now. I am very interested in any people or groups working on this.

Good evening,

Mr. Keefe, I am currently writing an article/paper related to Electronic Discovery and Maritime Law. I am hoping to be able to contribute either the entire article itself or just the thesis and/orabstract to a Maritime or Marine News publication, if possible.

I have a strong desire to partake in the furtherance of the marine/maritime industry; and so, if you could direct me in the right way with regard to this petition, I would highly appreciate your time and efforts.

Please advise, and if this manner of contact is presumptuous, do forgive me. The forwardness, should there be too much present, is not my intention. Thanks again for your time, sir.

George, I finished reading your piece titled "Cruising into Troubled Waters". Certainly food for thought of the highest order. Mariners who hold licensed positions are subject to a myriad of rules/regulations/requirements that would make a brain surgeon faint. Personal liability for violation of any of those can range from arrest, inprisonment, personal liability. The list just goes on and on. Costa Concordia is another data point on the long list of Maritime Mishaps, which will never ever go away. I agree with you completely we have a situiation that will play itself out over the next decade (at least). I consider this another "caution light" to those Licensed Mariners who accept such risks as normal day in day out operations. Salary won't solve it or make it better, vigilance will help reduce the occurances, but not the consequences when things go wrong. Being mindful 24 hours a day of where you are and what is going on is part of the job. Mistakes are unforgiving.
