Seafaring, by its very nature, involves travel. According to seafarers themselves, traveling from country to country and seeing the world were major factors in their becoming seafarers.

May 2001, Malcolm P. McLean, the "Father of Containerization", died aged eighty-seven.

Definition of Admiralty Law

Admiralty law, also called the maritime law, is a combination of U.S. and international law that covers all contracts, torts, injuries or offenses that take place on navigable waters. Admiralty law traditionally focused on oceanic issues, but it has expanded to cover any public body of water, including lakes and rivers.

Introduction

  • Seafarers are increasingly expected to take on heavier workloads with less crew support, and to work longer hours with less time off – on board or on shore – to recuperate. 
  • Under the international convention on Standards of Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping (STCW), it is acceptable for a seafarer to work up to 98 hours a week. This is far longer than the limit of 72 hours a week laid down in the International Labour Organisation convention 180, and almost double the maximum of 48 hours per week in the European Working Time Directive.
