[QUOTE=cappy208;40859]An interesting compilation of how FEW ships, tugs and JOBS are left in the US Merchant Marine:
This does NOT include the inland fleet, but is interesting to show how small the fleet really is.
For Newbies looking to get into this industry see how few positions there are, and how difficult the competition is going to be to get a berth.[/QUOTE]
I get your point (already knew it) but this list has some shortages, no ECO, 1 Tidewater, both are more than “inland”. I think there’s more missing; I’ve seen this list before over the years and I’ve always wondered why they bother to re-date and republish it when it’s so inaccurate. Haha…they’ve got that POS Baffin Strait on there though!!
