Unfortunately, maritime casualties occur on a regular basis and they have serious ramifications all around the planet. And this takes place even though the ships of today are equipped with the anti-collision technologies and modern navigational equipment to prevent such cases.
The present publication was prepared by the recognized expert and every effort was made by the author to illustrate that the causes for these casualties are not limited to the malfunctioning shipboard navigational equipment and that they are often caused due to the human error.
In addition, the content of the book demonstrates the necessity of proper planning ahead. Among other reasons there are also non cross-checking of the ship’s position information with the relevant systems and too much of reliance to the sophisticated state of the art electronic technologies and information provided by them.
Plus, the apathy arising from the hours and hours of uneventful and boring watchstanding is also considered one of the factors contributing into the possibility for the casualty to occur. We recommend the publication to all those interested in the provision of safety of their ships through analysis of the maritime casualties and their possible reasons.
