  1. Hi Sir,

    All the articles are informative. I am a regular reader of Marineinsight. My small request would be that if you post some case studies of various incidents that took place in merchant navy it would be very useful. It would be great if you make a separate topic for case studies other than mentioning those incidents in the appropriate article.

    Thank you.
