A standard reference for Masters for forty years, this new edition of Peril at Sea and Salvage: A Guide for Masters reflects major changes that have taken place in the shipping industry since the last edition was published. It outlines the actions a Master should take when confronted with an emergency: from the initial assessment and immediate actions, through to towage or salvage arrangements, as may be necessary.
The Ship Captain’s Medical Guide is intended primarily for use on vessels where there is no medical professional, such as a doctor, on board. It provides assistance and direction for crew members when it becomes necessary for them to assess and treat trauma and medical illness.
This guide covers how to avoid attack, how to defend a vessel, how to cope with captivity and how to remain clearheaded and calm if the vessel is taken. It includes a translation section to help seafarers communicate with their captors. It provides advice on getting the vessel safely away from the trouble zone and aftercare of personnel. It is a manual to help keep people alive and in a positive mental state if they are unfortunate enough to suffer a pirate attack and find themselves in a hostage situation.
This guide provides practical information to assist seafarers with the safe operation and maintenance of survival craft. Although the main focus of the guidance is directed at personnel onboard, it will also be of interest to shore managers and company superintendants having general responsibilities for shipboard safety.
This book is the official text for the RYA Basic Sea Survival Course and the RYA/ISAF Offshore Safety Course and supports ISAF approved Offshore Personal Survival courses. It also highlights the importance of having the correct safety equipment and will also give you the knowledge of how and when to use it, making it invaluable for anyone who takes a boat offshore for racing or cruising.
This third edition, in full colour throughout, is the ideal study aid for cadets and ships' officers. Topics covered include evacuation systems, immersion suits and lifejackets, onboard training, helicopter operations, lifeboat, liferafts, personal survival, emergency communication and medical advice.
