by William A. McLeod
This latest edition has been revised by Captain Cormac MacSweeney. Captain MacSweeney was very keen to keep close to the original style of the book when first published, and later maintained in the revisions of Captain A.G.W.Miller.
This revised sixth edition has been brought up to date to bring in current legislation and additional material added as required.
Most seamanship books available to young seamen are of the advanced test-book type, intended for candidates studying for Certificates of Competency as Mate or Master and dealing with the technical subjects connected with their Examinations.
This book has been compiled as a book of elementary knowledge for the beginner and also as a reference book for older deck ratings, especially those who seek information relating to everyday seamanship problems, or who wish to prepare for the qualifying examination for the Certificate of Qualification as Efficient Deck Hand (EDH) or for the new STCW qualification Able Seafarer Deck.
This is a must for anyone falling in to the above category and I would very highly recommend it to anyone seeking to gain such qualifications.
