Florida Deadly Boating Accident - Maritime Lawyers

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Florida Fish and Wildlife officials are investigating after a deadly boating accident three miles east of Boca Chita Key Sunday.
According to FWC’s Jorge Pino, a 23-foot MAKO capsized when a wave swamped the boat.
Carnival Cruise Lines hopes keeping you connected to your everyday life will convince you to get away from it all.
According to a press release, Carnival plans to install new, higher-speed wireless internet service on its 101 cruise ships to enable passengers to stay in touch with work or loved ones while on vacation.
"Our smart hybrid network will not only enhance our guests' onboard experience and help our crew members keep in touch with their friends and family at home, but we believe it will also help us attract new cruisers, especially millennials who have made connectivity and social media an everyday part of their lives," Ramon Millan, Carnival’s senior vice president and global chief information officer was quoted as saying.
The service, which — according to the press release — Carnival calls “WiFi@Sea,” combines standard, shore-based wireless with, long-range, shore-based services  and satellite-connected access to keep guests connected throughout their cruise. The press release said the new system will be 10-times faster than the internet service previously offered by Carnival.
In the press release, Carnival said it plans to launch the new service this year, beginning with ships sailing in the Caribbean, before expanding to its other routes and brands over the next two years.

Jacksovnille Dredging Projects

Congresswoman Corrine Brown and Congressman Ander Crenshaw are still pushing to get the project for the deepening of the St. Johns River in the Water Resources Development Act Conference Report.
The legislators sent a bipartisan Congressional delegation letter to the House and Senate Transportation Committee Chairs and Ranking Members asking for contingency language in the conference report to authorize U.S. Army Corps of Engineers projects that receive a final Chief’s report up to one year after enactment of the bill, according to a news release.
If accepted, this change would allow Jaxport to prepare the port for larger modern ships set to arrive in 2015.
