Anyone see the headline: “WH lifts restrictions on fuel delivery” details mentioned something about a old obscure and etc. thing called the 'Jones Act"? so now they can get more ships to deliver fuel to miami … where are all the foreign flags coming from so fast to service Miami?
I’m just wondering why, with MSC Atlantic right up the coast they aren’t just loading up some oilers from Norfolk and running them down there once Irma passes. Seems like a perfect “feel good” option, and good training to boot.
Stop wondering … this has nothing to do with utilization of public resources or maintaining the skills of mariners and condition of those publicly owned ships.
Nooooo say it ain’t sooooo. You don’t mean to say that somebody got their pockets lined for this do you? [/sarcasm]
Looks like somebody is being our friends in this at least…
