The Nautilus Telegraph's letters pages have some of the keenest insights in the industry. If you have something to say to your fellow maritime professionals, email the editor at Letters should be 300 words or less, and photos illustrating your point are also welcome. You can ask not to be identified by name, or to be known only by your Nautilus membership number, but you must supply your name and address. The editor reserves the right to crop or edit readers’ letters, and to refuse publication. Letters will be published as space permits, online and in the printed Nautilus Telegraph.
