Re: Watch Out for Lost Containers!

I saw a sailboat on the hard with damage from hitting a shipping container back in the 80's, and it was scary. There was a several foot gash under the waterline that went through the outer skin & core the only thing that stopped the boat from sinking was the inner layup.

As for container tracking, there are several companies that provide it as the US Military tracks it's containers going in and out of theater as theft is a major concern as lots of the stuff we ship we really don't want to get in the hands of the bad guys.
