Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The focus of this book is on large, modern commercial vessels. Unique in its emphasis on the art of shiphandling and maneuvers for such vessels, it is a classic work designed to teach mariners and pilots practical shiphandling skills. The book is used as a text by maritime academies, shiphandling training facilities, and by ship's officers and apprentice pilots studying the art and science of shiphandling and piloting.

The material incorporates information from recent tests of the hydrodynamics of ship behavior and simulator-developed data with procedures and practices based on the authors' practical experience, gained while working as shipmasters, canal pilots, mooring masters, and river pilots. The fourth edition includes new information on squat and underkeel clearance in shallow water, bridge resource management for pilots, and discussions of new propulsion systems and hull types including VMax ships and Azipod propulsion systems, proposals for a more modern approach to VTS, and laptop navigation systems for maneuvering in pilot waters.

Good bridge practices in pilot waters and training techniques, including simulator training, are
