New bulk carrier guide

The Nautical Institute has published a fully revised edition of its definitive reference work "Bulk Carrier Practice", providing comprehensive, practical guidance on every aspect of bulk carrier operations. It takes the reader through a typical voyage - from paperwork, hold preparation and loading to cargo care on the voyage and discharging - illustrated with more than 300 photographs. There is extensive coverage of the carriage and monitoring of both standard and unusual cargoes. The book describes the various vessel types, detailing their construction, maintenance, equipment and safety considerations, paying particular attention to hatch covers, stability and trim. Chapters incorporate useful checklists and sources of further information.
