go back to page 1, read the OP, all your answers are there.
The real conspiracy questions are why the ship is being held up from assisting along with the US based skimmers.
It is already shown that by the Jones Act this vessel would be exempt from that regulation, any goods would be unloaded/transferred either ship to
ship or local port US based, no US to foreign or port to port transfer.
Jones Act and Maritime Law allow the vessel to be used temporarily to assist in Oil Cleanup; Both can no longer be used as an excuse.
BP made the mess, they should pay for the cleanup, since they have dropped the ball on this issue, outside help should be allowed in with BP picking
up the tab.
The only lingering resolution, with no real answer until the ship has attempted to skim; is how much residue will be left mixed in with the water to
be returned to the GOM after skimming. It would still have to be better than what is currently in the GOM.
