Previously this list was in alphabetical order, but in hopes of making it more useful, I rearranged it. Coast Guard sites are listed first, then non-Coast Guard sites. Within those two groups the sites are arranged based on my perception of how active they are in terms of the frequency with which new material is posted from most active to least, with my perception of how relevant it is to our readership thrown in as a fudge factor. Bryant’s Maritime Consulting has been moved up between the Coast Guard sites and the Non-CG sites because of the high degree of Coast Guard content.
Coast Guard News (Stories from “Coast Guard News” repackaged)
Eaglespeak (great source for information on piracy)
MarineLink (Shipping/Marine Industry)
MarineLog (shipping industry and shipbuilding)
gCaptain (Shipping industry)
Cdr Salamander (Navy news)
Covert Shores (among other topics, drug subs and other craft used for smuggling)
Inactive Blogs–These sites have either been inactive for at least a month or appear broken. I will put them back on the active list when they publish new material.
