Okay, then it's difficult for me to discern what "invested" means as you use it.
And no, we didn't go out and lecture. But the reports are on-line, and if read, they do educate, and, I believe, are intended to do so. Otherwise we'd do check lists and not write reports. They're used by industry publications and by academic writers in maritime law journals and also make their way into license prep courses and curricula of the maritime schools.
Whether that's a "byproduct" or a direct result Is, I think, semantic.
