A big, brilliantly illustrated and very clear exposition of a very important but not always well understood subject. A really valuable addition to modern ship-handling literature.
As the book makes abundantly clear, AHTS operations are fraught with danger. Masters and crews, with their counterparts in trawling, really have to know what they are doing and exercise maximum care at all times. Their price of longevity is eternal vigilance.
Everything is on a big, heavy and powerful scale. Big powerful, boats – ships really, heavy, awkward, sharp equipment, big seas, big money and big egos. Like so much in the offshore oil and gas industry, a recipe for disaster.
That tends to make operators in the sector more cautious and safety conscious. Despite the huge money involved, most are also very cost conscious. This first rate textbook raises that consciousness further. It notably assists owners, designers, builders, masters and crews to operate more economically, safely and environmentally responsibly.
