Shipyards are dangerous places, but they are still important and vital to maritime activities.

Your rights after a boating accident need to be protected

A couple of weeks ago, we wrote a post about the recreational boat accident rate in the state of Florida. It appears that the numbers are stabilizing, and that's a good thing.

Repairs needed after cruise ship encounters technical problem

Another day, and another cruise ship story that involves a breakdown of a critical vessel in the Carnival fleet. Today's story is from Mobile, Alabama, where the Carnival Triumph is begin held for a short amount of time as it receives repairs. The Carnival Triumph was returning to New Orleans from Mexico, but as it returned home it encountered engine issues. It was unable to maintain maximum cruising speed, so it docked at the Mobile port for repairs.
