SHIP HANDLING IN RESTRICTED WATERS — BANK EFFECTS AND INTERACTION BETWEEN TWO SHIPS
|D O W N L O A D
The content of this instructional video is intended to highlight the major effects that such passages commonly impose on maneuvering characteristics of the vessel. When the ship enters shallow water area and has either to navigate close to the banks or pass other ships, the ships of any size may get quite heavily influenced by the so-called "induced hydrodynamic effects" sometimes resulting in groundings and even ship collisions, and this is what the video focuses on.
Apart from this training video, there are three more available at Libramar addressing the anchoring, ship squat and shallow water effects, and in-harbor ship handling, all of them are equally important for the mariners so we definitely recommend all students of ship navigation and all professional mariners engaged in handling their ships in the conditions dealt with in these films, to download all of them and go through the content very carefully to get to the maximum clear understanding of the risks and how to avoid them.
