[QUOTE=Bilgeman;140999]I’m not sure that the licensed folks on that ship have anything to worry about from the Coast Guard.
Once the doors to the graving dock close, (and I’ve been in that dock), and the water is pumped out, it’s no longer considered a “ship”, but is the yard’s responsibility.
If you’re going to have a spill, THAT’S when and where to have one.
Now EPA might give you grief, but go after your license?[/QUOTE]
I’ve been in that dock too, a time or three and I hope you’re right about this one, but when we had our “incident” the yard did everything it could to divest itself of any liability regardless of the language in the work package. It took lawyers to sort out who paid for what.
