Bridge Resource Management for Small Ships

Bridge Resource Management for Small Ships: The Watch keeper's Manual for Limited-Tonnage Vessels is the first book to address the unique needs of operators of small ships (limited-tonnage vessels) including tugs, ferries, yachts, and other passenger-carrying vessels.
