Résumé/Citation: Amends the law relating to the registration of ships, including fishing vessels, and safety in shipping. In particular, it provides for state financial assistance to reimburse expenses incurred in connection with training for officers and ratings for service in merchant ships (section 26), and payment of travel and other costs related to crew members' joining or leaving a ship outside a defined area (section 27). The Act also establishes a voluntary Merchant Navy Reserve (sections 28 to 29). It provides for liability on the part of the owner and master in respect of a dangerously unsafe ship, which is defined to include undermanning (section 30), and for liability in relation to conduct endangering the ship, structures or individuals (section 32). section 33 deals with the investigation of marine accidents. In section 46, the Act amends sections 7 and 8 of the Merchant Shipping Act 1970 in connection with the payment and account of a seafarer's wages upon termination of the crew agreement. The amendments to various merchant shipping Acts and other matters are set forth in Schedules.
