    Re: A credible AIS track for the Costa Concordia

    To elaborate a bit:   I'm not sure that all countries of the world require double bottoms in tankers, but after the Exxon Valdez disaster, the US quickly implemented a rule that requires all tankers entering US waters to be double-bottomed.   I'm not certain, but I suspect that the EU followed.   Given that these two economic giants required double-bottoms and they consume 80~90% of the worlds oil, tankers became double-bottomed.

    Actully, it was the rule makers who REQUIRED double hulls. No one volunteered.
