The “people priority” we shouldn’t forget

NauticalInstitute

There has been the odd experiment with remote-controlled ships but to date nobody has successfully operated ships without people. People are an investment, and shouldn’t be regarded as a cost; they are huge contributors to the success of a voyage and should be treated as such.
