    Author: Captain M.C. Armstrong

    The Fourth Edition is available from October 2019 and supersedes the 2007 edition. Subjects covered include: The Navigators, Ship Behaviour and Accidents.

     

    Ship handling is an art and as the artist must learn to use and to appreciate the materials available to him, so must the ship handler have a complete understanding of the materials of his craft.

    This book, as the name indicates is about practical ship handling.  It concentrates on ship handling in the confines of pilotage waters which is a more specialised activity in the maritime profession and pilots are trained and experienced in this speciality.

    It explains many fundamental principles of ship handling as applied to berthing, unberthing, passing and anchoring.  The advantage and disadvantages of bow thrusters and controllable pitch propellers are explained.
