    1. Captain Death

      Captain William Death was a British privateer. He commanded the Terrible, and died in battle in 1756, in the first year of the Seven Year's War. Thomas Paine, as a young man, almost sailed with Captain Death, but his father stopped him from going at the last minute.

      Captain Death is not to be confused with the 1935 film Captain Blood, starring Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland.

    1. MARPOL VI regulations in 2015.

      Relates to Prevention of Air Pollution from Ships http://www.imo.org/en/OurWork/Environment/PollutionPrevention/AirPollution/Pages/Air-Pollution.aspx "The main changes to MARPOL Annex VI are a progressive reduction globally in emissions of SOx, NOx and particulate matter and the introduction of emission control areas (ECAs) to reduce emissions of those air pollutants further in designated sea areas.

      Under the revised MARPOL Annex VI, the global sulphur cap will be reduced from current 3.50% to 0.50%, effective from 1 January 2020, subject to a feasibility review to be completed no later than 2018. The limits applicable in ECAs for SOx and particulate matter were reduced to 0.10%, from 1 January 2015. "
