   This book is about seafarers employed within the sector of merchant shipping which is regarded as substandard. By substandard we include ships defective in structure and equipment, and those with low wages and poor working and living conditions. Very often they are the same vessels. In this substandard sector of shipowning, seafarers are exploited and abused, and respectable shipping companies are exposed to unfair competition. The abuse of seafarers comes to the attention of most people only when a ship is abandoned in a local port and appeals are made to assist the crew, an event which is not something new but in recent years has been increasing.
