    And the banks are reluctant to give securities. Trade is slowly creaking to a halt for lack of cash. But major transport doesn't work without securities. Dealers need securities so that they can make advance payments when they want to buy and ship freight. They only get paid when a sale is made. If dealers have nothing to ship, shipowners have nothing to ship. And cutbacks in the car industry for example, are also causing them problems. According to the association of Hamburg ship brokers and agents, profit margins for a ship with 2,500 standard containers have fallen by more than fifty percent since the start of the year. And Peter Krämer, managing director of the 'Marine Service Group', a major international shipper, has seen a dramatic collapse in profits. Dan Hirschfeld and Philipp ...

Only about 1 in 10 will have freely available Internet. In 2010, Somali pirates were holding 544 seafarers hostage. Every year, more than 2,000 sailors die at sea, and an incredible two ships are lost every day. In 2012, the attack rates on seafarers was higher than the number of violent crimes in South Africa, the highest-crime nation on Earth. A container ship travels the equivalent of three-quarters of the way to the moon and back in one year during its regular travel across the oceans. The largest ships can cost over 200 million dollars to build. Females constitute only about 2% of seafarers. People from the Philippines make up more than a third of all crews worldwide, with nearly a quarter million at sea. The largest ships can store 745 million bananas in nearly 15,000 containers. That's about one for every person in Europe and North America. Shipping is one of the oldest industries in the world. Today, however, it plays as important a role as ever. There are approximately 55,000 merchant ships carrying cargo around the world. Around 1.5 million seafarers are employed by the global shipping industry In 2009, the 15 biggest ships in the world gave off the same amount of greenhouse gas as 760 million cars, or about two cars for every American. Compared to trucks and planes however, shipping is still the greenest form of transport, relatively speaking. Worldwide, only around 2% to 10% of containers are actually inspected. U.S. ports normally inspect roughly 5% of the 17 million containers arriving at the border every year. Germany, Japan, and Greece are the three countries with the biggest fleets based on total dead weight tonnage controlled by parent companies located in these countries. Having made the previous two points, it's worth mentioning that if you added shipping to the list of the world's most polluting countries, it would come in sixth place. Shipping companies are extremely secretive. For example, the official Greek shipowners' association won't even reveal how many members it has. As of this moment there are roughly 20 million containers crossing the world. A container ship engine has about 1,000 times more power than a family car. To give you an example of how much it costs to ship something, a bicycle would be roughly 10 dollars while a soda can would be less than a penny. Economically speaking, the shipping industry is enormous. In the United Kingdom, it accounts for more of the GDP than restaurants, takeaway food, and civil engineering combined. Shipping is so big in fact that it constitutes roughly 90 percent of the world's trade. If you were to line up the containers on just one ship they would easily stretch nearly halfway around the planet. If you stacked them up, and they would reach to nearly 7,500 Eiffel Towers and if you unloaded their cargo onto trucks the traffic would stretch for 60 miles. Shipping is one of the first industries to adopt widely implemented international safety standards. In 2011 the 360 commercial ports in the United States received goods from abroad worth $1.73 trillion. The U.S. relies on shipping to bring in two-thirds of its oil supply. In the global fleet there are six types of ships: General cargo ships, bulk carriers, fishing vessels, container ships, passenger ships, and tankers. Shipping is cheap. It's so cheap in fact, that rather than fillet its own fish, Scotland can send its cod 10,000 miles across the ocean to China to be filleted, and then sent back for less than the price of doing it themselves.

DEEP BAY -- A mid-island man fears his dreams of converting an old fish boat into a live-aboard vessel may have sunk along with the vessel itself. The 18-metre long wooden vessel "Bertha-G" sank sometime overnight between August 1st and 2nd, dropping onto the ocean floor just outside the harbour in Deep Bay. Owner Rick Perry of Bowser says he purchased the vessel a year ago figuring it had great potential to be converted into a pleasure craft but it began taking on water eight months ago. Perry regularly monitored the vessel and says he was disappointed when he was told he had to remove the boat from within the harbour where it was being moored. The harbour authority's chair Keith Reid confirmed to CTV News that the Bertha G was ordered out, along with other vessels that were not covered by insurance. Reid says the harbour has had problems with previous sinking vessels and has had to pick up the cost of raising and disposing of them when previous owners abandoned responsibility for them. Reid says the clean up bill for a previous vessel which sank at the harbour in January of 2011 was in excess of $5,000. Perry initially brought the vessel closer to shore late last week upon the advice of Coast Guard personnel and other mariners in the area and admits that it's a decision that is not being accepted by some in the area. Perry says there is only residual spillage coming out of the bottom of the tanks on board the vessel and that a coast guard inspection verified there is no environmental risk to nearby shellfish operations close to the vessel. Perry says he'll be working on patching and then re-floating the vessel as low-tide access permits. Follow Gord Kurbis on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/CTVNewsGord
