A manual for the modern day seafarer in the 21st Century. It is essential reading for seafarers at every level, covering ship types, handling and stability, on-board procedures and equipment, regulations and emergency response.
A career at sea or in a marine-related business requires amassing a terrific volume of knowledge and the art and practice of seamanship is perhaps one of the most encyclopaedic job descriptions there is. Many modern day seafarers will hear talk of days gone by when no self-respecting Chief Officer would be without his Seamanship Manual. In recent decades, shipping seems to have moved at a tremendous pace and the need for a new up-to-date manual which captures such a broad scope in a single publication that appeals to the forward thinking seafarer is needed. This is exactly where this book, which has been ten years in the making, positions itself – a manual for the modern day seafarer in the 21st Century.
