This book principally deals with the towing operation from the tugs viewpoint.

Anchor Handling, Barge Mooring and Moving, the Operation of Jack-Up type vessels afloat, the practice of stability control on semi-submersibles and ballast control techniques on such vessels. The series of books are organised such that particular volumes are relevant to personnel on specific vessel types.
