• What to do with old ships
Where the ships leave, end-of-age? Modern ships are able to walk for decades on the seas and oceans, before the repair becomes uneconomical. When their life is about to end, about 90% of the huge ships are off the coast of India, Pakistan, Indonesia, and Bangladesh, where cheap labor lives.
