Marine investigators have called for a "drink driving" ban at sea after a trainee sailor drowned at port.

Call for 'drink-drive' ban at sea .Brian Daly, 20, was pulled from the water in Swansea docks three days after he disappeared from the cargo ship MV Arklow Willow in December 2007.

The Irish seaman had high levels of alcohol in his blood because he went drinking before starting duty.

I agree with Marine Investigators.There should be a ban for "drink-and-drive-on-sea".  Even in the stage of becoming an officer, the people in school are drinking heavely. That is a danger. If they cant level it now or totally stop it, they won´t be able to stop drinking, even at sea. And that is a great danger for the crew onboard and for the people onshore

The ship I was on last year had a non-alcohol policy, which worked quite fine.

As a future Officer I wouldnt allow to have alcoholic drinks onboard (The Master had the last word in that case, (and)  or the Shipping Company).
