The content of the first original title by Professor Toshio Hishima, namely "The Best Seamanship - A Guide to Deck Skills", was developed with his intention to help the deck crew members as well as the cadets to get to the better understanding of the different repair activities that they will get involved into onboard their vessels. Subsequently, the present publication was released, covering the shipboard machinery space activities.

The readers will start with the lathe work which is still quite basic and necessary-to-know information, followed by the gas and arc welding procedures and equipment. After that, they can proceed to the valves installed onboard their vessel, and here the coverage includes the technical maintenance of the valves, their types, replacement matters etc.

Working with slings is addressed within a separate chapter. The rest of the book ideals with the alignment issues, steel piping and its replacement, general works commonly carried out in the ship's engine room, and so many other important topics. The text is full of useful advices, that is the reason why the volume is so highly recommended.
