CREW NEGLIGENCE AND MAJOR CASUALTIES AT SEA

The article looks at penalties, under English civil law, which may be suffered by shipowners who do not properly man their vessels. Manning is or should be an important area of management, unfortunately, this is not so in the case of many ship operators. Proper manning and the need for training are discussed. Limitation of liability is dealt with and illustrated by actual cases. International conventions on manning are seen as the only way to remedy the situation as the insurers are unlikely to take sufficient steps to improve the position in the future.
