From the Editor: Coming Soon in Pacific Maritime Magazine

This is just a brief reminder that the next print edition of Pacific Maritime is out this month, and it’s an issue that’s chock full of useful information.

In case you somehow missed the news, the print edition of Pacific Maritime now comes out every other month; the next issue, carrying a cover date of March/April, should be hitting mailboxes starting in mid-February.

Among the stories in the magazine are a regional update recounting what a wild ride 2022 was for California’s major seaports, as well as an article detailing recent technological advances when it comes to spill response and recovery.

But that’s not all. In addition, the magazine will have an update on maritime construction projects that are planned or currently taking place on the West Coast; plus two vessels profiles: one on the latest addition to the Shaver Transportation ship handling fleet, and the other on a new workboat by Oregon-based North River Boats.

If you don’t already receive the magazine, you can receive a free – yes, free – digital subscription by visiting this page:

Or if you prefer to receive a physical copy of the magazine every other month and don’t mind paying a small amount, subscriptions ranging from one to three years in length are available here: 

Thanks for reading.
