Available for the first time in paperback, a revised and updated eleventh edition of a reference title which provides coverage of various aspects of the theory and practice of seamanship. Includes a new introduction by the author.
Since it was first published in 1962, The Theory and Practice of Seamanship has been continuously revised culminating to date in this 11th edition. This new edition includes an updated section on 'Regulations for Prevention of Collision at Sea' as well as a new Author's Note.
'The author has written a book which will appeal immediately not only to apprentices and cadets but also to seasoned mariners. Here is the knowledge, apart from that which is gained by years of pacing a ship's deck, which is necessary to handle a vessel at sea. Because of its scope and because it contains almost every conceivable piece of information that a seamen could want, it is cheap at the price.'
'This book is an excellent and responsible contribution to the nautical field and must have a tremendous appeal to all grades of seamen.'
'It is the best single volume on seamanship I have ever encountered. The chapters on the principles and practice of ship handling are especially recommended.'
'A comprehensive index together with well-labelled paragraphs ensures that all items can be found quickly.'
