Popeye (now boatless, but alive) sues Maesrk for $250,000 loss plus damages? Can't see that working out well.

Popeye's insurance company sues Maesrk? Can't see that working our better.

Regulation? No chance. Few countries can even enforce regulations in their own waters, none in international waters.

International treaty to prevent loss of containers and pollution? UN and others have bigger fish to fry.

Defeatist? I guess I am, in this case. Or only picking battles with some chance of a win.
