An up-date of the original award winning programme, Coping with Stowaways. Coping with Stowaways - Edition 2 (Prevention is better than Cure) re-visits the subject mixing new interview footage in support of revised management and security information. In recent years there has been an upsurge in stowaway incidents and an increase in the levels of violence encountered by crews dealing with the problem. This updated programme highlights the best practices to prevent stowaways getting on board and the procedures for dealing with them if, despite precautions, they succeed in hiding away. The difficulties associated with disembarking stowaways and the help that can be provided by P&I Club representatives are also discussed. Coping with Stowaways - Edition 2 highlights the dangers that can face a Master and crew when dealing with stowaways and offers practical advice on how to raise security levels to ensure the problem is avoided. As the programme makes clear, Prevention is better than Cure.
