I have spent over 40 years going to sea and working in the maritime field in a multitude of capacities. I have sailed in every position from Ordinary Seaman up to Master on all oceans of the world. I have worked as a marine surveyor, ship’s pilot, compass adjuster, shipyard representative and expert witness in maritime law trials. I have worked on and commanded everything from tugboats up to Panamax vessels. The sea has been good to me and I respect it and all those who work on it.
There are too many maritime security companies advertising their services that have no idea what they are doing and have limited, if any, maritime or security knowledge. Their web pages abound with pretty photos, different and varied logos and useless, and at times, dangerous information. I have seen where poorly informed security crews plan to speed up to outrun the pirates, take drastic evasive action, or even assume command over the master. You and I both know that we can’t “speed up” a 50,000 DWT tanker or turn quicker than a 30-foot pirate boat. Improperly trained security teams have killed innocent fishermen in the past. While I have the deepest respect for ex-armed forces personnel (I am one), they are not trained in merchant ship operations or construction, nor maritime defensive tactics.
My security teams are trained to work with the ship’s crew and to follow all orders from the Master. Anti-Piracy security is a serious business, and I employ only serious, well qualified men who have not only an exemplary military background, but have passed certification for a law enforcement officer as well. There is no question that armed security teams are effective in preventing piracy. My teams operate in a defensive rather than offensive mode – we are far more interested in arriving safely at the next port than attacking pirates.
