When things go bump in the night… or in the day, like the two cruise ships in the
video above, "Someone’s gonna hafta pay." That sentence, despite the poor

insurance to pay for damages in the event of an accident or other property & casualty
loss. Major carriers featured here include One Beacon and AIG..
Marine insurance can include coverage for collision, grounding, salvage contractors,
injured seamen (Jones Act coverage), wrongful death lawsuits (DOHSA Death on the
High Seas Act coverage) shoreside worker’s injuries (Longshore & Harbor Workers’
Compensation Act coverage), maintenance & cure, passenger injury, and other risks.

could be filled with vast quantities of hazardous substances such as asbestos,
PCBs, carcinogenic solvents, silica compounds and other toxic materials. Some
nations have found that the solution to dealing with such environmental nuisances
is to "export" the problem to third world countries where workers take the ships
apart under dismal safety measures. Greenpeace has been an opponent of the
practice. Click Greenpeace to learn about employment & volunteer opportunities.
It's funny how different professionals see
different things when they look at a ship.
