STILL IN THE AIR

In response to the threat posed to the maintenance of their ship registries by the practice of flagging out, some traditional maritime countries have turned to so-called captive or offshore registries designed to permit vessels to continue to fly their home country flags while using non-national seafarers to reduce crew costs. The author, who is president of the Federation of American Controlled Shipping, examines registries these and argues that a similar system for the U.S., an American International Register, would offer no commercial advantage. The article is adapted from a submission by the author to the U.S. Commission on Merchant Marine and Defense in Washington.
