Manning represents the largest single cost in ship operations and is frequently the reason for changing from a national flag requiring national crews to an international or open registry allowing non- national crews. The author confirms the general understanding that such a change could result in crew cost savings of up to 70%, but cautions that not every owner can benefit from such savings. He outlines some of the crewing methods that are available under various flags. In making comparisons, he tries to avoid suggesting that any one crew nationality is preferable to another; instead, the procedures discussed for a specific registry are intended to apply to any crew nationality, although wages, when noted, are usually those for Filipino seamen.
