    Published: June 2017

    This revised sixth edition has been brought up to date to bring in current legislation and additional material added as required.

    Most seamanship books available to young seamen are of the advanced test-book type, intended for candidates studying for Certificates of Competency as Mate or Master and dealing with the technical subjects connected with their Examinations.

    Such books are of little use to those who wish to learn the rudiments of seamanship work.  For this reason, these pages have been compiled as a book of elementary knowledge for the beginner and also as a reference book for older deck ratings, especially those who seek information relating to everyday seamanship problems, or who wish to prepare for the qualifying examination for the Certificate of Qualification as Efficient Deck Hand (EDH) or for the new STCW qualification Able Seafarer Deck.

    The Regulations relating to the issue of these certificates are included so that the seaman may appreciate the practical value of the information included in this book.  The Chapters are arranged to deal with general ship equipment, manual seamanship, cargo gear, tanker knowledge, boatwork, cleaning gear, painting, miscellaneous hints and navigational equipment in roughly alphabetical order and should be useful to all seafarers for reference purposes.

    The MS SeaReader platform is accessible to individuals as well as shipping companies. It provides a digital technical library on board or in the office. The books are in PDF format. They are always available and constantly kept up to date.

    The publications are displayed in a digital format that is quick and efficient to navigate whether the user is online or offline. It is a flexible system and can be moved from device to device seamlessly. The catalogue offers an easy overview of the publications with an optimized search filter.

     

    The software is Windows-only, and Macs are not supported.

    Once purchased, we cannot accept returns.


    The digital library is easy to access and update and you don’t need to be online to access the publications. SeaReader makes compliance inspections easy by having the latest mandatory publications on board at all times.
    The shipping costs and administration associated with maintaining a paper library are removed - there are no physical books to ship and the entire library is updated with the click of a button.

    SeaReader contains Flag State Regulations from Azerbaijan, Bahamas, Canada, Cayman Islands, Cyprus, Denmark, Hong Kong, Isle of Man, Liberia, Malta, Marshall Islands, Netherlands, Norway, Panama, Singapore, United Kingdom, USA and Red Ensign Group. Included e-books from IMO, Brown, Son & Ferguson, Imray, and a growing list of other maritime publishers.

    SeaReader is a digital technical catalogue for use on board vessels. It stores all of the publications that are needed on board and displays them in a digital format that is fast and easy to use.

    SeaReader keeps the administrative work on board to a minimum as the latest set of publications are always available.
    The easy to use system makes it quick and easy to see what books are on board the vessel. One annual licence provides access to paid for ebooks on two separate PCs.

    SeaReader is simple, very easy and intuitive to use. With one-click updating and filtered search results, it is quick and easy to find the information you need. There is no need for additional work to make sure your vessel is flag state compliant, as SeaReader does this for you.
