Summary In an eight-month investigation, the Houston Chronicle investigated the ocean shipping industry and found that the world's seas are routinely traversed by thousands of aged, poorly maintained ships that lack the most basic lifesaving and firefighting equipment. Ships today are often manned by overworked, ill-trained sailors who are unable to communicate, especially during crisis, because of language barriers. (Aug. 18-22, 1996)
