SHIP HANDLING IN RESTRICTED WATERS — IN HARBOR SHIP HANDLING
|D O W N L O A D|
In harbors and ports where maneuvering areas are confined and shallow, there are many navigational restrictions. Therefore the operators of the vessels are required to maneuver them in full accordance with the current environmental situation. Additionally, when the entering and leaving the ports also involve berthing and unberthing operations, ship handling without assistance is not easy.
This difficulty is due to the problem of directional control and coursekeeping, which, in turn, is a result of the poor steerability of the ship at low speeds combined with the influence of wind/current. This video training is a part of the four-film set.
Here at our website are the other three videos - they are devoted to the bank effects and interaction between two vessels, ship squat and shallow water effects, and anchoring issues. We definitely recommend all ship navigators to have a look in these four videos to refresh their knowledge of handling the vessels in restricted water.
