An excellent volume that will be most greatly appreciated by the junior readers. As implied by the title of this book it is intended to explain the readers why the heavy vessels constructed not only of wood but also of metal do not sink and are capable of staying on the surface of the water, i.e. floating. The volume starts with the explanation of the terms sinking and floating and then the author proceeds to the fundamental law of the shipbuilding - the Archimedes principle.

Apart from the main subject of the volume, the author also describes the hull and the main parts of the ship. There is a short historical background; the book is even supplemented with a glossary of most commonly used terminology. An absolutely recommended brochure for the shipbuilders and mariners of the future. Let them have a look in this publication and they will understand the main principles much easier than they would do it reading their school books; we guarantee that they will enjoy reading.
