A picture of a sailing ship should appear above. If it does not, but other illustrations in the site do, please excuse our temporary technical glitch.  Some browsers do not pick up all of our  illustrations, we are working on that. . The best performance for graphics on our site so far appears to be with Google or Google Chrome. Most illustrations and all hyper-links work with all browsers that we are aware of but non Google browsers tend to drop certain of our illustrations. We have not found the cause yet.


Click on this link for a one and half minute video introduction to our site:


 After viewing the video let it run to the very end then simply click on the YouTube "back arrow" at the top left corner and you should arrive right back here. If you still have questions after that, look to the right of the sailing ship and click on  INTRODUCTION.

 If you are an "Old Hand" with us, today's blogs can still be reached by simply scrolling down. When you see another station ID you've covered the day's blogs and are starting on the previous day's.. At some point simply scrolling down won't work. Just click on the title you want on the right, or when the titles run out click on a month, and a new stream of titles will appear. 

 If you come here regularly for daily maritime news, there are often interesting items in the blogs but over on the right if you click on NEWS SERVICE  you will go straight to our constantly updated piracy reports, headline service, and hyperlinks to the world's English Language on line maritime news services.

We occasionally post news and feature alerts as the cyber publishing day wears on right here on the Station ID in red. Check back often we are constantly changing.

New This Morning:

Its an old TV and radio broadcast tradition to start the broadcast day with the National Anthem. We recently found the only version that we feel could ever compete with Whitney Houston's Superbowl rendition, click for a Star Spangled Banner that will blow your socks off: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QEGlsHS6tSQ don't forget to stand and place your hand over your heart.

In the NEWS SECTION : Holland America Cruise Ship Rescued 70 passengers from a stricken day excursion boat in Alaska yesterday: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/20/holland-america-cruise-sh_n_1812153.html

NEW LATE THIS MORNING: Arctic Ice Days AWAY From Record Low Level: http://www.inquisitr.com/308021/arctic-ice-nears-record-low/

NEW THIS AFTERNOON: OPINION PIECE: THE SINO-JAPANESE WAR OF 2012Will China and Japan really Go to War Over Disputed Islands. Absent U.S. Involvement Who OWuld Win?   http://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2012/08/20/the_sino_japanese_naval_war_of_2012 

The opening post this morning is the full text of the National Mariner's Association's Second Request to Congress. This is the reason for the writing of the serial we just finished posting BLOOD ON BROWN WATER. 

The NMA's Second Request is followed by a discussion of submarines and submarine literature.

The final early morning post is a reminder about our October virtual boat show which is linked to one very funny video. BUT WHATEVER ELSE YOU DO DON'T MISS THIS MORNING'S VERSION OF THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER, YOU'RE LOOKING AT THREE FUTURE SUPER STARS.
