Shiphandling with Tugs
In considerable detail, Captain Reid discusses the various kinds of modern tugs, their propulsion and steering systems, and their handling characteristics. Both the dynamics and the operations of handling tugs are explained and amply illustrated. He shows how tugs are used as an auxiliary to shiphandling, as a prime mover for dead ships, drill rigs, and construction barges, and in special maneuvers with VLCCs and ULCCs.
