From Haight's Maritime Items:

Maritime Spotlight - Being a shameless merchandiser, I arranged for a Press Release to be issued announcing the launch of the firm’s Maritime Spotlight website. This site constitutes an overhaul of our long-standing Maritime Developments site. The Maritime Spotlight has increased internal maneuverability and has an enhanced search feature. It is designed to work in conjunction with our recently-launched Maritime Industry website. While I would like to take credit for the two Internet sites, I must confess that they were the work of the firm’s excellent IT staff. When combined with the Maritime Items electronic newsletter, the two websites should provide you with ready access to most significant governmental actions that impact the maritime community.
