Ship Handling (Herve Baudu)

Ship Handling (Herve Baudu)
Suggested required reading for all mariners no matter where they work: on rivers, in open seas, in narrow passages or limited draft conditions. A good balance between theory and practical hands-on approach with excellent illustrated examples. Consists of three parts: 1) the ship's capabilities and its manoeuvring gear; 2) the forces which set the ship moving; 3) the ship as it manoeuvres (mooring, sailing in shallow waters, port manoeuvres, etc.).

The American P&I Club’s Loss Prevention team is dedicated to protecting the most valuable resource the maritime industry has – the human resource! Earlier this year, the Club hosted local Members, pilots, and industry experts in New York City for a round table discussion entitled “Safe Boarding of Vessels”. Participants discussed boarding procedures and boarding equipment on various types of vessels and solutions for reducing the risk of slips, trips and falls.

In this video, Danielle Centeno – Vice President, Loss Prevention/Survey Compliance – discusses three keys to safe boarding that came out of that session.
