The ship’s Captain: Master or slave?

image

Here is a PDF of an important article from Captain Inder Jit Singh MNI, published in the October 2011 edition of The Nautical Institute’s Seaways. I agree with what he wrote there and I believe many Masters will.

I quote him:

“Paradoxically, the ship’s Master now carries allow of the responsibility for activityon board ship, but enjoys little trust from authorities or owners, and less power. If we are really concerned about safety — or about the future of the industry — this must change.”

    You may feel that Masters need more power, but ironically the complete opposite may be true, if we have to improve the human rights and other conditions on board Merchant vessels. Link below:
