Second, how can the Mast...
Produced in partnership with Human Rights at Sea and psychological health consultancy March on Stress, this booklet provides toplevel guidance for senior management to help improve the mental health of seafarers. It will be of particular value to ship managers/operators, HR departments and all involved with seafarers’ welfare around the world.
Many maritime incidents could have been prevented by the use of a navigation
assessment, which, through careful observation, evaluates how the navigation of a ship is being conducted.
An effective assessment should take place over several days and provide practical feedback to the bridge team as well as guidance to shore-based management.
This handbook provides a step-by-step guide that will enable the...
Numerical weather prediction (NWP) has significantly improved the accuracy of weather forecasts and enabled the development of services specifically for mariners, including routeing advice and forecasts as ECDIS overlays. This practical
This second edition recognises that practical guidance on equipment, training and operational practices is now urgently needed. Everything necessary to manage this fundamental change is covered, and theoretical knowledge is made real through contributions from seagoing members of The Nautical Institute. Best practice is encapsulated in the industry recommendations for ECDIS
Fire at sea is one of the most dangerous hazards. This handbook complements training given to naval firefighters, covering safety, correct principles and use of equipment, types of fire and emergency response. The last chapter, contributed by The Nautical Institute and written by FGM Evans FNI GIFire E, examines the hazards on commercial vessels, particularly cargo fires. The handbook provides a refresher f...
Abandoning ship is a team effort and this classic handbook is designed to complement the training given to naval personnel for the 25-person liferaft. It covers evacuation, inflation, equipment, communications, search and rescue,
Bad ship design can kill people. It can also make working on board difficult and resting on board impossible. Good design can make maritime operations safer and more effective. This book aims to give naval architects and ship designers, both new and experienced, an insight into how seafarers work and live on the
This is a practical guide to handling class 1A and 1AS ships in ice conditions in the Baltic and St Lawrence seaways. With global warming opening up ice-bound areas for longer periods, there is a growing demand for ice-class ships and Masters, officers and pilots to navigate them. This is a text on extreme seamanship, demonstrating the difficulties of navigating in ice and the precautions needed for safe pa...
Traditional maritime skills like sailmaking and canvas work have been handed down for generations but seldom recorded. There are few authoritative sources of information on this subject but the Royal Navy has maintained this knowledge
This fully updated second edition is aimed at enhancing the safety and efficiency of bulk carriers and their crews. Robert Lorenz-Meyer, President and Chairman BIMCO, said in the Foreword: “Anyone in the bulk carrier industry will benefit from
Since the first edition of this handbook was published in 2008 the number of DP vessels and DP operators has increased dramatically. DP vessels are larger, and the industry has become more sophisticated in its use of DP.
This book is an authoritative and superbly illustrated guide to hatch cover surveys and inspections. It contains a large selection of photographs of hatch covers – over 400 – and is an indispensable guide for inspectors, surveyors, fleet managers, P&I clubs and others concerned with claims.

This book sets out the practices which are used to handle tug barge systems in port and at sea. The main focus concerns operations on the west coast of the USA and Canada. However, the hard lessons learnt there will transfer into other areas around the world, making this book a valuable source of reference for tug operators generally. It is used as a text book for US Coast Guard qualifications.
The tenth edition of this popular guide has been completely revised and expanded to take account of the latest changes to maritime
regulations and procedures.
Designed primarily as a study aid for Master’s Orals, the book is also used by OOW and Chief Mate students and has drawn the praises of many successful Orals candidates in the UK and overseas. It is also a handy reference for serving Shipmasters, ...
Aimed at the sail training sector, this practical handbook explains how the introduction of new materials has influenced design and operation. Advice is given on voyage planning, operations and safety. The different training and equipment needs for vessels with modern technology, rather than those constructed to traditional design, is covered. It is aimed at those who serve, or wish to serve,
The book is linked to the Institute’s self-study scheme leading to a Harbour Master’s Certificate. It explains how responsibilities vary between ports and, based on the experience of Harbour Masters from different types of ports all over the world, gives examples of what new entrants to the industry may encounter. Different aspects of the role are examined, largely following the course of a vessel as it app...
This handbook has been developed after years of simulator training experience and discussion with simulation instructors. Simulation is a valuable resource, and it is used increasingly in training, but what about training the trainer? Specialised training on integrating simulators into teaching is not always available. The book is a resource for instructors, or those aspiring to be instructors, who are expe...
