#1 What happens to the frieghters,tankers,barges,etc?
Are they siezed and auctioned off?

The owners of these multi million $ ships start loosing them and thinks will change in a hurry.

#2 Raptor, my impressionfrom teh article is that they are impounded ... for a while... and then let go. I would assume taht the owner is warned about the shady activities of the crew and told that there won't be a second warning.

Not what I would do, but an effective way of not getting into an international logjam.
