The shipmasters of today and people in command of navy vessels have a truly unique authority differing from the authority of civil servant or, for example, the factory manager. Even though the vessels are under formal jurisdiction of the Flag, they are commonly treated as independent outposts. Therefore both master of the ship and commanding officer are normally expected to make sure that the safety of the crew members is provided, upholding the general rules of the law. This is a new edition of the book which is not exhaustive but still covers virtually all important aspects of the subject. The content is based on the valuable contributions of the internationally spread experts in the field. It introduces several completely new techniques.
Opening with the general introductory information, the book addresses such matters as training for command, the responsibilities of the ship master, health management, marine insurance issues, surveys conducted on board the vessel, the requirements to the masters, the ISM Code, Port State Control and Flag states, responsibilities of the master in distress situations, salvage and associated contracts, safety management, commercial management, shipboard maintenance, running costs drydocking-related issues including planning and maintenance aspects, shiphandling, anchoring, navigation and so many others issues all of them being critically important for the safe and efficient operation of the vessel.
