Coming Soon - Peril at Sea and Salvage: A Guide for Masters, Sixth Edition

Sep 03 2020


ICS and OCIMF will be launching the new edition of Peril at Sea and Salvage: A Guide for Masters in October.

Last revised in 2000 we expect a great deal of interest in this fully updated edition. Peril at Sea and Salvage: A Guide for Masters is priced at £155 and is available to pre-order directly from Witherbys or your bookseller.

 

About the Guide

The shipping industry has made great progress in the last twenty years in its goal to eliminate accidents, but the sea remains a challenging place to operate. When an emergency happens, the ship’s Master takes responsibility for dealing with the situation, acting decisively to protect lives and prevent or minimise damage to the ship, environment and cargo.

 

A standard reference for Masters for forty years, this new edition of Peril at Sea and Salvage: A Guide for Masters reflects major changes that have taken place in the shipping industry since the last edition was published. It outlines the actions a Master should take when confronted with an emergency: from the initial assessment and immediate actions, through to towage or salvage arrangements, as may be necessary.

 

It also explains the importance of prompt notification to relevant parties, particularly coastal States and the company. A section is included with recommendations for a company’s shore-based personnel.
