Geoffrey Watson photographed and travelled on many different ferries over the past forty years. Especially during the 1980’s when Russell Plummer organised an annual trip to the Baltic which became known as the Ships’ Monthly Ferry Cruise. With Russell’s knowledge and contacts, he was able to photograph ferries from the best vantage points and travel in style on the latest ferries, quite often with visits to the bridge and group dinners included.
If you’re looking for a broad overview of supercargo operations, this will certainly cover off the essentials. It’s of particular relevance to readers looking to direct their career towards a consultancy or supervisory role in this field, giving a good understanding of the industry and the position of a ‘supercargo’ in particular. While some form of shipping-related experience is expected, author Mike Wall does a commendable job of making the subject accessible to complete novices too. No easy task.
