MM&P-contracted Pasha Hawaii has announced the delivery of the MV JANET MARIE, the second of two new ‘Ohana Class, 774-foot, LNG-powered container ships built at Texas-based AmFELS.

The new ship joins Pasha Hawaii’s fleet serving the Hawaii/Mainland trade lane, as well as the company’s first ‘Ohana Class vessel, MV GEORGE III, which began service on Aug. 17, 2022.

The two vessels surpass the International Maritime Organization’s 2030 emission standards for ocean vessels.

Energy efficiencies are also achieved with a state-of-the-art engine, an optimized hull form, and an underwater propulsion system with a high-efficiency rudder and propeller.

The new ships are named in honor of George Pasha III and Janet Marie Pasha, the late parents of The Pasha Group President and CEO George Pasha IV.

“We are very grateful to welcome our second ship as a testament to my parents and our incredible Pasha Hawaii team members who continue to raise the bar on excellence and dedication,” said George Pasha IV.

“We are extremely proud of the perseverance and commitment of our partners at AmFELS, and the skilled men and women at the shipyard, including our own on-site team members, who have proven once more that shipbuilding and ingenuity are alive and well in the United States.”

The Coast Guard has launched a review into its handling of allegations of sexual violence at the Coast Guard Academy between 1988 and 2006.

The agency says its initial, yearslong inquiry into the allegations identified 42 individuals “against whom there may have been substantiated claims” of rape, sexual assault, and sexual harassment.

But “it does not appear that the Coast Guard appropriately investigated,” according to Sens. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) and Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.).

Cantwell is chair of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. Baldwin is chair of the Subcommittee on Oceans, Fisheries, Climate Change, and Manufacturing.

Congress has oversight authority but was not informed of the agency’s internal investigation—which ended in 2020—until after CNN published an article in June.

“[We] cannot tolerate the fact that the Coast Guard did not notify us of this,” Cantwell told USCG Commandant Linda Fagan at a July 13 hearing.

“We cannot have the media be the policemen on the beat.”

Fagan, who was confirmed as commandant after the Coast Guard investigation ended, said she has initiated “a 90-day transparency and accountability review to understand what are the aspects of the culture that have allowed this to occur.”

“It started as legacy sexual assaults that were mishandled at the Coast Guard Academy,” she testified.

“But it is clear to me that we’ve got a culture in areas that is permissive and allows sexual assaults, harassment, bullying, retaliation, that’s inconsistent with our core values.”

“We have made an incredible amount of progress as an organization investing in policy, victim support, how we investigate and hold accountable those perpetrators,” she added.

“…[B]ut we are not where we need to be.”

Fagan testified that there are “pockets of rust that need to be eliminated from the organization to ensure that there’s no silence around it, that every victim feels safe coming forward, that they’re supported, [with] the end goal [of] zero sexual assaults in the organization.”

Cantwell said she will ask for an Inspector General’s report on the agency’s handling of the allegations and make public the results of the investigation.

The International Longshore & Warehouse Union in Canada and the British Columbia Maritime Employers Association said Thursday they had reached a tentative agreement on a new four-year deal.

The agreement, which must be ratified by members of the union and the employers’ association, brings an end to the 13-day work stoppage at British Columbia ports that handle about a quarter of Canada’s foreign trade.

Neither party to the agreement released details.

Transport unions around the world had pledged their support to Canada’s striking longshore workers.

ITF President and Dockers’ Section Chair Paddy Crumlin said swelling corporate profits in shipping, particularly since the onset of the pandemic, must be redistributed and shared with the maritime workers who do the heavy lifting that generates companies’ unprecedented financial gains.

The strike, which affected 33 ports and terminals in Canada, came shortly after a tentative agreement was signed by the ILWU in the U.S. and the Pacific Maritime Association.

MM&P is one of the nearly 700 transport unions in 147 countries that belong to the ITF.

Representatives of labor unions and the Maritime Administration joined other industry and government leaders on June 26 for the christening of the first of five National Security Multi-Mission vessels destined for the country’s maritime academies.

MM&P President Don Marcus represented the union at the event, which took place at Philly Shipyard in Philadelphia.

The EMPIRE STATE VII will be delivered later this summer to the State University of New York Maritime College.

MARAD named Elizabeth Christman, vice president of the Maryland Pilots Association and a graduate of SUNY Maritime College, as sponsor of the EMPIRE STATE.

Christman supported SUNY cadets directly for several years as a watch officer and chief mate on earlier EMPIRE STATE vessels.

Kimberly Alfultis, the spouse of SUNY President Michael Alfultis, has been named the matron of honor of the ship in recognition of her long-standing support for the student body and her work in fostering a safe and inclusive environment at sea.

The NSMVs feature numerous instructional spaces, a full training bridge, hospital facilities, a helicopter pad, and the ability to accommodate either 600 cadets or, in times of humanitarian need, up to 1,000 people.

“The christening of the EMPIRE STATE is a powerful statement about the impact of a strong domestic shipbuilding policy and the potential for our nation’s shipbuilders to rise to the challenges we face today,” said Congressman Joe Courtney (D-Conn.), ranking member of the House Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee and one of the major advocates for the NSMV program.

“Now, we have a proven contracting model and architecture to not only train mariners but boost our sealift program without relying on the vagaries of the foreign market.”

The International Maritime Bureau is calling for action in response to the increase in pirate attacks in the Gulf of Guinea.

The IMB recorded 65 cases of piracy and armed robbery against merchant ships in the first half of 2023, up from 58 in the first half of 2022.

Of the 65 cases reported in the first half of this year, 57 were boardings, two were hijackings, and in two cases the vessels were fired upon.

The IMB does not include in its statistics reports of state-sponsored incidents, like Iranian boardings and hijackings near the Strait of Hormuz.

During the first half of 2023, 36 crewmembers were taken hostage, 14 were kidnapped, two were injured and one was assaulted.

All the cases of kidnapping occurred in the Gulf of Guinea.

Off West Africa, there have been three kidnappings for ransom and two hijackings (including one incident where both occurred). Both hijackings also resulted in theft of the ship’s equipment and partial theft of cargo.

These attacks, in the second quarter of 2023, targeted vessels at anchor.

The resurgence of Gulf of Guinea piracy comes just a year after the IMB noted record-low piracy in the region and delisted Nigeria from its piracy hotspot list.

“We once again call on Gulf of Guinea regional authorities and the international community to refocus their attention on the region, to establish long-term, sustainable solutions that effectively address these crimes and protect the seafaring and fishing communities,” said IMB Director Michael Howlett in a statement.

The IMB also asked countries bordering the Singapore Straits to devote resources to fighting maritime crime, which has recently increased by 25 percent, including eight incidents since the beginning of the year of armed pirates attacking ships.

There have been two reports this month of stowaways hiding aboard ships’ rudders.

Police in Brazil found four stowaways last week in the rudder trunk of a Liberian-flagged ship after a 5,000-nautical mile voyage from Lagos, Nigeria.

The men, who said they were citizens of Nigeria, were not able to provide any form of identification.

A police spokesperson said they were in poor health. They will be kept in the custody of Brazil’s maritime agency until they can be repatriated.

The Spanish Coast Guard and police in the Canary Islands reported that on July 10, they found two stowaways perched on the top of the rudder of an MSC containership arriving from Africa.

The two had been aboard the vessel for six days, traveling in a position in which they had no shelter and were unable to stand.

The MSC MARTA had arrived in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria after a voyage from West Africa of more than 2,700 nautical miles.

A patrol boat on a routine inspection spotted the two lying atop the rudder only feet above the water. They said they had climbed aboard on July 2 in Lagos.

They were taken to the hospital and then taken back to the containership, which under Spanish law is responsible for returning them to their home country.

Washington State Ferries is seeking deckhands and mates. The minimum license requirements are an Inland Mate (unlimited) with Federal Pilotage for all ferry routes in Puget Sound.

MM&P and WSF have begun a program that will allow deck officers from both inside and outside the agency who do not currently hold the pilotage to be employed by WSF as “Mates in Training.”

This program is now fully funded.

Candidates are paid at approximately $41/hour, with the possibility of some local travel reimbursements (mileage) within the Puget Sound region.

With the implementation of the 2023–25 MM&P contracts on July 1, 2023, it is anticipated that the rate of pay should be increased by 6 percent, to $43.46.

Mates in Training can ride the ships for up to a year to obtain the pilotage endorsements necessary to get on the MM&P seniority list.

The first cadre of pilotage riders (internal) has completed the program and are being deployed to the fleet as fully qualified Chief Mates. The second internal cadre has begun the program.

The solicitation announcement for outside candidates is imminent!

When the solicitation announcement has been made, it will be posted through the Washington State Department of Transportation website which is located at: Employment | WSDOT (wa.gov)

Interested candidates are advised to begin monitoring the website as soon as possible. Use the keyword “Ferries” in the search box.

The application process for these positions will be explained in the solicitation.

There are 30 seats in the entire program, of which 30 percent are reserved for outside candidates.

There are currently 10 seats coming available specifically for outside candidates.

These seats are open on a rolling basis (as one person graduates, a new candidate is brought in).

Therefore, it behooves interested candidates to apply and get in the hopper for interviews.

If you are interested in this opportunity, contact MM&P Pacific Maritime Region Vice President Dan Twohig: dtwohig@bridgedeck.org or 206-390-9907.

Dan will be putting out the entire solicitation to the MM&P membership through an “Email Blast” from MM&P HQ as soon as it goes live on the website.

It is anticipated that “outside candidates” will complete the hiring process and begin filling seats in the fall.
