THE THEORY AND PRACTICE OF SEAMANSHIP
|D O W N L O A D|
The seamanship is considered one of the oldest skills the humans possess; in fact it is as old as the mankind. With the members of the seamanship community serving on vessels constructed at any time within the last half-century or even more, including different types and sizes of vessels, the book on seamanship should include both modern and ancient ship handling techniques, finely blended with the commonly used equipment.
In addition to that, such publication should take the constantly changing regulatory framework into account. The present volume is mainly aimed at the cadets and ship officers on their way to getting the British Certificates of competency; however, the contents will be equally useful to absolutely all seafarers who can use it as an excellent and comprehensive reference tool.
This eleventh edition of the book features completely revised and updated text supplemented with numerous informative data tables, statistics and illustrations. It now covers the collision and stranding of the vessels, refloating and survival in severe weather, prevention of marine pollution by oil and other important aspects. The book has gained world popularity foe to the impressive coverage and reader-friendliness.
