Here are some links pertinent to maritime law. Having said that, not everyone complies with laws as they are written and they vary from location to location.
Also it appears the laws vary if you are a seaman(woman) in the military vs commerical ventures vs. pleasure crafts. Some links are US specific. Others are not. I have tried to but UK and Australia links toward top since they started the query...

>What happened to the fellows who were lost at sea? I heard a story that the Master's or Captains of the ships, (whichever terminolgy is correct) were required to record the deaths. But what happened when the ship was lost as the Resolute was? I have the story of it being found and towed to the east coast of the US, then returned to Queen Victoria.......but what of her crew? Is there any way to find any of this information?
>I also have the story of the Alert out of Peterhead as well, and it gives the names of 8 who died but how do we know who these folks are for sure? Is the John Walker who died on 11 Nov 1860 where the Alert wintered, the son of John Walker, Mason, in Peterhead?
>Anyone with any ideas? Thanks, Goldie
