A wake-up call for America’s marine policy makers

MY 54 years in the US marine industry began with a short stint at the office of naval architect Jim Henry, the inventor of liquefied natural gas shipping. Jim had a thriving design practice for bulkers, conversions of war surplus ships of many types, and even oil rigs — a stimulating training ground for fledging naval architects. Then, after more than three years in the navy, mostly at sea in a destroyer escort, I spent four years at the Central Technical Department of Bethlehem Steel, then the world’s largest shipbuilder.
