Here is an excellent manual for the boat owners and marine technicians prepared by Ed Sherman. The declared intention of the author, who is the senior writer of the American Boat & Yacht Council, was to provide readers with necessary knowledge on the proper troubleshooting of the modern complex electrical systems installed on boats and protect such electronic installation from the interference.

The readers of this book will also get to know how to eliminate various charging and starting problems, and how to track down the wide range of wiring, grounding, bonding, and corrosion problems. We would treat it as the top notch for every advance amateur electrical do-it-yourself boater. Though it is not too big and thick, this book is densely packed and full of valuable technical information related to the corrosion, RFI, electrical leakage and other important issues requiring the immediate attention of the persons handling and maintaining the boat. It features very good and high-quality graphics and images.

It is not actually a primer on electronics but rather perfect textbook for those who have some fundamental understanding of electricity. Do not miss this one - you know, boats always have some electrical issues and you' better get prepared to fix them yourself.

The present official publication is intended to be dealing with the very essential and basic theoretical principles of the marine navigation - such principles would commonly include position and direction on the surface of the planet, charts and nautical publications, map projections, nautical chartwork, fixing and navigational aids, coastal and ocean navigation, pilotage and anchoring, common navigational errors, bridge organization, hydrographic survey and many other aspects considered fundamental.

The appendices placed at the end of the book contain the summaries of the plane/spherical trigonometry, proofs of the various formulas and other useful information. The marine navigation can be referred to as the process of planning of the movement of the various marine vehicles from given point to the destination point.

The present set consists of two separate volumes with the first volume dealing with the position/direction of the Earth's surface, and second one addressing a bit more complex calculations. Even though the navigation technologies of today are rapidly developing, their theoretical fundamentals remain unchanged...

The main purpose of the present publication was to assist all navigators to acquire and further maintain a higher level of knowledge relating to the content and use of the electronic navigation charts in ECDIS. The content of the volume is expected to supplement and reinforce the elements of the ECDIS training addressing the use of navigation chart data together with the interpretation.

Note that the book is not intended to replace any of the requirements for the professional training outlined in the IMO Model Course of the Manila Amendments to the STCW Convention. The whole process of navigating using the ECDIS fundamentally differs from the regular navigation by means of the paper charts. The ECDIS present the mariners with highly flexible displays offering a serious increase in the safety and situational awareness. Such equipment should actually allow for more time for the watchkeepers to properly maintain visual watch.

Note, however, that in case the navigators do not have a full understanding of the ECDIS display and settings, they can easily misinterpret the chart displays and this can result in the safety of the ship compromised. This publication shall also be included in the list of the documents that are to be on the shelf of any mariner and on the navigation bridge of any vessel equipped with the ECDIS, for training and reference purposes.

This encoding guide was released with the intention to provide users of the electronic charts with the detailed guidance on what exactly is necessary to produces a good uniform and consistent IENC. For all of the classes and attributes together with their values used with an IENC, this guide will provide a basis for its establishment, and also provide description of its relationship to the real life entity.

The book will also provide required criteria for the proper use of inland ENC and give the specific examples of encoding supplemented with the graphic data. The guide covers all minimum objects to be contained in IENC, such as the waterway bank, channel boundaries, isolated dangers, officially released aids to navigation, contours of the existing dams and locks, waterway axis etc. In addition to all above requirements, the present guide covers recommended objects, plus attributes and values considered suitable for any IENC worldwide. Each country or geographical region defines which of them will be necessary to meet local requirements.

Note that this is a living document; it means that its content is subject to modifications done in order to accommodate the development of the future IENC. Two fundamental procedures have been established to making the amendments to this title, the one addresses the proposals for new and copied object classes/attributes/attribute values while the second one covers other changes.

Another interesting book about another prominent historical character, namely about Lord Keith, who was a famous Scottish Admiral serving His Majesty fleet and who ended his brilliant career by overseeing the surrender of the Napoleon's army in 1815. This person held almost every single important command and his story shows the history of the Navy during the times of fighting sail.

The present publication is in fact the first monograph to be solely dedicated to the modern biography of this character who learned everything about the commanding naval battles and squadrons in the course of the American Revolution and commanded for fleets, namely the Channel fleet, the Mediterranean fleet, the North Sea fleet and the fleet of the Eastern Seas.

Although he had never led any of the fleet under his command directly to the battle, this admiral was engaged in the support join operations with the Royal Navy of Britain together with the allied forces and managed to maintain command of the sea and to ensure the free passage of commerce at the same time, controlling more than two hundred of vessels. The book is documenting Admiral Keith's dealings with the text based on thousands of public and private records...

As it is implied by the title of this book, it is mainly dedicated to the various adhesives used in the field of marine engineering. This type of bonding is one of the established practical methods of joining slowly gaining the broader and broader acceptance in ship construction and offshore engineering mainly because of the benefits it offers, such as the lack of hotwork, ability to join very thin plates etc.

This publication is primarily intended to provide users with a rigorous treatment of the related subject focusing on practical applications and was written for the practicing engineers. The author has paid particular attention to the adhesively bonded joints transferring loads together with associated moments and also having a structural function; note that the publication does not deal with the thin films adhesion like hard coatings.

Several very important aspects of the application of the adhesives are addressed, including selection and pre-design of the adhesives, requirements applicable to the bonded connections and various examples of application of such connections in marine ships and offshore structures, assessing durability and moisture resistance and predicting possible failure of the joints, determination of various properties of the adhesive bonding arrangements by means of testing, and several other important technical aspects.
