The first new book on naval shiphandling in more than a generation, this guide helps beginning and intermediate shiphandlers learn and perfect a skill crucial to their naval careers while at the same time offering useful hints to seasoned pros. The book reflects all the many changes that have occurred in recent decades and is the first to cover the use of shiphandling simulators. The author, a skilled shiphandler with years of experience in nearly every type of Navy vessel, helps novice shiphandlers get the most out of their opportunities, whether handling real ships or simulators. Captain Barber tells readers everything they need to know about forces acting on the ship, getting underway, making a landing, transiting the channel, and underway replenishment. Standard commands for both ships and tugs are included, along with needed information on the use of tugs and pilots. Voyage planning, emergency shiphandling, tactical maneuvering, and more are covered in detail. A chapter is devoted to the special shiphandling characteristics of various classes of naval vessels. An introduction to the Rules of the Road is provided in an appendix.
