The problem of corrosion is known to all boaters and is treated as one of the most serious dangers they can experience, and it is quite common and even unavoidable due to all factors, such as the salt water, chemicals and moisture, being present when you sail, and creating a combination eventually attacking the metal hull. All types of corrosion have been addressed, including the galvanic, electrolytic corrosion and also electrochemical one.

This is definitely the most complete volume on the subject of those available today. The readers will know how to protect their boats from corrosion, be able to recognize the signs of corrosion and cure it at the very beginning.

The present volume was released with the intention of the authors to cover the knowledge requirements for the certificate of competency. It opens with such basic topics as the courses, position lines, the Earth, relevant formulae, nautical charts, sailings, and the associated navigation tools including sextant. Then the readers will proceed to the altitudes definitions and corrections, followed by the useful information on the stereographic projection.

The Earth-Moon system and Solar system have been covered in detail. Apart from that, the attention was paid by the authors, who are two professional sea captains, to the star recognition and great circles, ex-meridians, tidal theory, stars and star identity, composite great circles, latitude by Pole Star, and many other topics – it is very important for the ship navigators to have sound understanding of the theory of the celestial navigation.

There are many exercises included for tracking the learning process, and all of them have been provided with the answers, making a book good even for studying at home. Even today, in a world of electronic navigation means, the navigators should still be familiar with the basics of the celestial navigation.

The present design guide will provide engineers with the necessary information and data on the shaft seals, including the wide variety of the designs and materials involved. The content was written by the RL Company, one of the world leaders in the field, currently tooling for over twenty thousand sizes of the standard shaft seal.

However, it shall be understood and remembered at all times, that each seal should fit its specific application and be designed accordingly. Several important factors shall be taken into consideration when determining the most suitable seal for the particular application, such as materials to manufacture the seal, its type, condition under which it is going to operate, dimensions, and others.

The seals addressed in this guide are commonly used together with the rotating and reciprocating shafts and their purpose is to contain the fluids. Another objective of their application is to exclude the contaminants. Among the strengths of the seals there are effectiveness in different environments, ability to be easily installed, and efficiency. All of the factors have been dealt with in detail in the guide, since they significantly influence the seal design.

The core objection of the present IMO Model Course 7.15 is to meet the competency standards for the electro-technical ratings for such functions as maintenance and repair of the shipboard electric equipment, control engineering, electronical engineering etc. as per the STCW Code, table A-III/7. The trainees will be given all the guidance they would need to obtain the understanding of the material included in the course, and reach the training goals.

By the end of the training, they will be able to demonstrate their competence. The first function implies using the electrical equipment safely, and contributing to the monitoring of the ship’s machinery and systems, as well as using the measurement equipment and tools for fault finding.

The maintenance and repair function is self-explanatory, and the last one is control over the ship operation and also caring for the people on board by applying all necessary health and safety precautions; the protection of the marine environment is also covered by this third function. Apart from the official training, the publication can be used by the students and even for the self-studying, as the material is presented in a very reader-friendly manner.
