The ship navigators shall always be concerned about the voyage planning, constantly adjusting and updating the course of their vessel according to the information they receive. The pilots, in turn, handle the vessels in relatively safe conditions while entering and leaving ports, on the basis of their practical experience of maneuvering in confined waters.
The idea of this volume is to explain what the ship navigators feel so that the readers can understand it, to demonstrate that the ship-water interaction is not quite straightforward. Written by the well-experienced ship pilot, the book will give readers the clear explanations of the things they need to know. It will be of great practical use for the younger officers and trainee pilots due to the unequivocal manner and plain language used.
We would particularly recommend this book to the people who need to understand the basics of the naval architecture but do not want or do not have time to dig too deep into the theory. Having read this one, they will get to know the necessary essentials and be able to apply them when handling their ships. There are many drawings and illustrations supplementing the text. The book covers virtually all what they would need to be aware of to safely navigating the shops.
