Marine Survival. 3rd Edition

This new edition fully updated and in full colour throughout is the ideal study aid for cadets and ships officers, fully updated, reflecting the recent May 2011, MSC.89 requirements for Lifeboat Release Equipment.

With a new section on Lifeboat release hooks and FPDs, the text covers Lifeboat Release Systems, where now, SOLAS Regulation III/1.5, requires ships with lifeboat release and retrieval systems that have been determined as not complying with the relevant sections of the 2010 LSA Code to be replaced with compliant equipment not later than the first scheduled drydock after 1st July 2014, but in any case not later than 1 July 2019.
