Guide to Ships, Their Cargoes and Working Environment
by Capt Bill Chalmers FICS
This book serves as a highly informative insight into a range of nautical subjects for those serving at sea, professionally connected with the sea or just with an interest in ships and shipping. There’s something for everyone with chapters on; tankers, propulsion and speed, ship management, pollution, international trade, marine insurance and classification, amongst many others. First published some 33 years ago of a need for shipbrokers to understand the sea-going subjects to undertake the examinations for the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers, this updated and expanded version, is a modern guide to all things nautical. Complete with diagrams, charts, maps and photographs, it’s a ‘must have’ for anyone’s bookshelf. Highly recommended.
