    Many marine consultants also aspire to becoming marine accident investigators and expert witnesses. These two areas are covered in detail, dealing with lawyers, going into court, and working with other experts and subcontractors.

    Having been an independent marine surveyor and consultant for many years the book is based on the author’s experiences. It is primarily aimed at those wishing to become independent marine surveyors and consultants. It covers many aspects of their work with some covered in depth.

    Marine surveys are of two types, proactive and reactive. In the former the surveyor inspects a vessel before a voyage or activity to ensure that it meets relevant requirements, standards and/or international conventions. A reactive survey is carried out after an event or incident. The former tend to be carried out by marine surveyors whilst the latter tend to involve an opinion from a marine consultant.

    The book contributes to the debate on the differences between marine surveying and marine consultancy. It covers different types of marine survey and marine consultancy assignment including hull damage, explosions, fire, pollution, sinkings, salvage and bunker disputes. Collisions, cargo disputes, crew injury and machinery failure are also covered with several examples.

    Many marine consultants also aspire to becoming marine accident investigators and expert witnesses. These two areas are covered in detail, dealing with lawyers, going into court, and working with other experts and subcontractors.

    The lack of awareness of our industry also extends to that of the marine/consultant, often being mistaken for marine biologists. Consequently. it takes time to explain the roles to the layman. When it is explained the response is often “That must be a really interesting job.” Hopefully, you will agree after reading this book.
