   This Edition has been revised and brought up to date. It includes a copy of the last Rules of the Road to be learnt by heart for the Board of Trade Examinations. Students are advised to make small models with which to practise the different evolutions and to exercise themselves in signalling. Seamanship is the art of handling a ship with all its appurtenances and crew. It includes navigation, pilotage, anchoring, avoidance of collision, cargo work, etc. Theoretically its basis is in mathematics and physics. In practice, nerve, judgment, and above all experience make the capable seaman. Sailors, as a class, are conservative and opposed to change. I would urge all young sailors to study their profession carefully, and to keep themselves informed on all matters connected with it; an easy matter now that so many excellent technical papers are devoted to the progress and welfare of the profession. Whether a young man elects to start in sail or steam he has a wide scope for the putting forth of all his energy and intelligence, if he takes his work in earnest. There is a mistaken idea in some quarters that in steam there is nothing to learn. The exact contrary to the fact. Quite as much nautical knowledge and skill is required as in a sailing ship, though the application is somewhat different.
