Ship Handling 3rd Ed.

SeaReader eBook: Ship Handling While sailors have always considered maneuvering a vessel of any size to be an art, nonetheless it remains a science. Based on this premise, the present work undertakes to address maneuvering from a theoretical perspective, drawing lessons from the latest research using simulated ship maneuvering, together with practical examples and the valuable experience of marine pilots, who have made significant contributions to this book. The work consists of three parts: the first sets out the ships capabilities and its maneuvering gear; the second considers the forces which set the ship moving, and the last one describes the ship as it maneuvers (mooring, sailing in shallow waters, port maneuvers, etc.). Special attention is paid to the behavior of a vessel subject to external forces, with a basic approach to these concepts suited to novice pilots, together with a more thorough study into ship dynamics, of interest to sailors more familiar with the subject. Responding to the recommendations arising from the STCW convention on the knowledge of maneuvering required of deck officers, this treatise analyses all aspects of a vessels maneuverability, whether passing through open water or confined waters. This work is aimed at both students at maritime training schools beginning to train in ship maneuvering, as well as experienced ship handlers who wish to further their own skills in this vast area.
