This site is dedicated to the promotion of maritime safety for individuals on vessels of all types including recreational vessels, passenger vessels, towing vessels, and fishing vessels. I have over 33 years of experience developing U.S. maritime safety policy and legislation for the U.S. House of Representatives.  When I retired, I was the Staff Director of the Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation.  This site will allow for the open and civil discussion of maritime safety issues.


  • Please add me to your list if send outs, whatever they may be. GOOD LUCK with this, I have thought about doing one myself for years….. but am so fed up with nobody giving a damn I have not done it.


    • Rick – I’m glad you like this site – and let me know if there is a particular topic you would like to see covered – and I will see what I can do. When you look at the main page of the web site – along the top bar – there should be a “button” that says “follow”. If you click on that you will get all of the items that I post. Thanks again, John


  • John, I just now learned that you are doing this. Congratulations! I have read several of your posts on items I find to be very interesting and compelling. I look forward to following your site regularly. Regards, Ted. Capt. USCG. Retired. “M” type.


  • John, I see no activity in almost a year. Is this site still active. I hope so. Ted
