This is a great reference and one of the most popular and successful books on seamanship. Most of the fundamental knowledge can be obtained from this brilliant book, presented in a clear and understandable format. The contents of the volume will help trainees preparing for their officer of the watch examinations. It is mainly a collection of the carefully selected crib sheet containing the essential information specifically designed to help students and cadets jog their memory.

The practicing mariners, in turn, will benefit from the bullet point style format of the volume. There are three main sections in the book. The first section deals with the navigation, covering all relevant topics from voyage planning and up to the heavy weather sailing.

The second section of the book addresses the response to emergencies, including actions to be taken in the event of collision, flooding and grounding incidents, equipment in use, pyrotechnics, lifesaving appliances and everything else you will need to be aware of in such cases. The closing section covers the shipboard operations including all associated regulatory framework, such as the ISM and ISPS Codes, MARPOL and STCW Conventions, IALA buoyage systems etc.
