Seamanship Techniques: For Shipboard & Maritime Operations
This third edition presents the most thorough revision of Seamanship Techniques since first publication in 1987. Already recognised as one of the leading texts for cadet and serving seafarers of all ranks, this new edition covers all the seamanship knowledge required by students and experienced seafarers alike. Ideal for Merchant Navy Officers from Cadet rank to Master Mariner, the new edition incorporates the 2003 amendments to the Collision Regulations and new material covering regulations and practice on cargo operations, survival systems, GMDSS requirements, watch keeping duties, rescue operations and pollution control, to name a few. Used by training establishments around the world this is the only reference to both shipboard practice and ship operations that seafarers will need. Expanded to cover marine operations in more detail, and fully aligned with the various seafarer certifications, including OOW, Chief Mate and Master Certificates, and IMO STCW requirements, this is a truly comprehensive single volume text and reference. Drawing on D J House's many years' experience, both as a lecturer and as a seafarer on many different types of vessel, Seamanship Techniques allows all mariners to benefit from the author's wide experience and clear, accessible guidance.
