Brown, Son & Ferguson have produced this manual was written by Extra Master HH Brown and revised and expanded upon by Master Mariner Saurabh Sachhdeva.
The latest version incorporates STCW 2010 Manila Amendments, new buoyage and marks, latest MCA deck officer oral syllabus and several IMO routeing measures and guidance notices for conduct of safe navigation. The required knowledge of the rule of the road at sea can only be acquired by careful study and observation and this book has been prepared to provide a means to this end. It is particularly suitable for study both at sea and ashore and the book's sequence has been arranged to suit that purpose.
The diagrams, questions and answers will be found to be helpful and informative. This book has been revised to include the updated COLREGS, including those annexed to IMO Resolution A910(22).
The latest amendments came into force on 29th November 2003 as has the revised edition of the Maritime Buoyage System 2010, which have both been incorporated in the book.
An updated IALA buoyage and marks section has also been illustrated by completely new coloured.
