Good article - well done. Very interesting twist regarding the legal case of the captain’s lawyer in the Wakashio case.
Never knew or didn’t recognized the implication of this:
Crew negligence is an insured risk. Owner negligence is not.
Blaming the captain also aligns with the public’s perception that the captain is solely responsible for the safety of the ship ignoring the role of shore-side management, regulators, commercial pressure and so forth.
