This book is for everyone, taking into account the amount of useful explanations and other information it provides to the readers. Its author did his best to collect about eight thousand of marine terms and words in a single volume - note that, since some of the terms may have more than one (sometimes up to five) definition, the total number of entries reaches 8600.
The terminology contained in this dictionary refers to such important nautical aspects as seamanship techniques and navigation, marine engineering, astronomy and meteorology, naval architecture, marine science, maritime economics, insurance matters, cargo handling, and others. In addition to that, the author made every attempt to get the scope of the publication extended through various subjects that may not be directly fall under nautical works but shall still be considered helpful to the mariners.
The dictionary has immediately become very popular among maritime industry professionals because it covers the whole vessel from keel to truck and from stern walk to the bowsprit. We would definitely recommend this publication to everyone wishing to get more familiar with the terminology used in the various fields of marine industry. And, of course, it is the must-have to every professional.
