All of the previous releases of this publication have already proven to be so successful and that was the reason of their extreme popularity among both industry professionals and students worldwide. The textbook opens with the chapter describing the main propulsion services together with the heat exchangers, followed by the chapter addressing the machinery service systems together with the associated equipment. Then the chapters come covering the ship service systems, their components, such as pumps and all pumping arrangements, valves and piping, cargo pumps, various systems installed on board tankers and gas carriers, auxiliary power plants, steering arrangements, refrigeration installations, propeller shafts, bow thrusters, stabilizing systems, cargo equipment, deck machinery, fire protection, heating and ventilation, and other important matters.

   From the advent of the earliest of the type, the submarine design has always pressed against the outer limits of the contemporary technological envelope. Investors and engineers have, of necessity, incorporated new and untested machinery and equipment into their craft in order to meet their goals of creating effective undersea vessels. The underwater environment, moreover, is unforgiving; errors in operation or failures of equipment have very dangerous and even fatal consequences. Success in submarine design, therefore, has come to those naval architects who have combined innovation and experimentation with substantial direct, prior experience or knowledge.

eyewitness boat
   To explore, to travel, to trade, to fish, to fight and for fun - people take to the water for all these reasons. For thousands of years, they have been developing new ways to make being on the water easier, safer, and quicker. The earliest crafts were simple rafts and floats. But then the hollow shell which sat on the water - probably a hollowed log - was invented. This was the boat, an invention as important as the wheel. Still used all over the world, the wooden boat is the ancestor of the great sailing ships and the huge ferries and container ships of today. There are now many hundreds of different types of boat and ship, made from every material imaginable, from reeds or animal skins to plastic, fibreglass, iron, and steel.

Principles of Yacht Design
   During the past thirty years yachting has expanded from being,a minority sport into a major recreational activity practised by millions all over the world.
