No Lookout!


IN times past, the master could delegate the safe navigation of the ship to the officer of the watch knowing that he could trust them to carry out this important task, especially in the early afternoon.

These photos show that this is now not always the case. A cargo ship passes an oil platform in Indonesian waters at a distance stated to be 5 metres. There appears to be no one on the bridge!
