    I suggest that you subscribe to the Canadian Coast Guard's "Marine-L"
    discussion forum. Professional seafarers from all over the world participate
    in the various discussions.
    For the past few years, ISM has been a hot topic; some old timers absolutely
    despise ISM, including and especially a professional master mariner from
    Belgium who is a regular contributor to the forum. He contends that it just
    means more paperwork and not a bit of added safety. Some of his comments are
    quite caustic though humorous.
    I can't exactly remember the mechanics of how to subscribe to the list but I
    believe that it goes something like this:
    e-mail the following address:
    In the body of the mail, type in "Subscribe" followed by your name.
    Failing this, go into the Canadian Coast Guard website and search for
    instructions on how to subscribe. I am still on the list but have been for
    years so I am embarrassed to say that I cannot remember how I subscribed!
    Hope this helps.
