A nice and remarkably informative publication prepared and officially released by the specialists of Maritime Administration of the United States. The intention of the team of the authors was to provide everyone involved in the maritime industry with the good reference source that could be used when communicating, writing various letters, preparing formal technical documentation etc. related to shipping. We do believe that is needless to say that the information included in this book will be very valuable for ship owners and crew members, ship agents, marine surveyors, insurance agents, port state control officers and other industry professionals. The authors have carefully checked myriads of marine terms to select the most relevant and important terms and to include them in the present Glossary. It should definitely be mentioned that, apart from the glossary itself, this book contains detailed list of United States flag carriers supplemented with the addresses and telephone numbers. We would recommend this publication to anyone willing to improve their knowledge of the maritime terminology. This is the must-have publication that has to be readily available at any time for quick reference.
