Hi Chris,

Thank you for reaching out regarding this research. I believe it's a 
topic very much worth discussing as IMO LOAs are always a disaster 
waiting to happen.

I encourage members who find this issue relevant to to fill the survey 
and to bring further discussion to the list.

@Chris, on the other hand I encourage you to produce a Spanish and a 
Portuguese version of the survey as language may be a significant 
barrier preventing you from getting more feedback.

Warm regards,
