Ship Stability Mates/Masters by Martin Rhodes (BSC. Hons)

Based on the syllabus for Ship Stability for the STCW 95 Chief Mate/Master Reg II/2 (Unlimited). As opposed to sheets of hydrostatic data, a full set of IMO compliant stability data is supplied in a 60pp pocket book which is used for all exercises. This book aims to be the leading work on Ship Stability.

Written by Martin Rhodes (BSC. Hons) who lectured in Ship Stability at Glasgow College of Nautical Studies between 1997-2005. Martin now a course leader at the nautical college in Trinidad & Tobago.
