These tables are the perfect ready-reckoner for any navigator wanting a quick and accurate distance reference between all the regularly used ports around the world.
The book is divided into key 'market areas', and includes a pull-out map for area indentification and chartlets for easy see-at-a-glance port reference. Traffic Separation Schemes are calculated into the tables and the distance to any port not included can easily be determined by making an approximation from the next closest port. Useful tables of major 'turning points' around the world (such as Cape Finisterre, Cape Horn and the Dover Straits), time zones and time and speed conversion tables are also included.
Reeds Marine Distance Tables is an invaluable reference for ship owners, operators, brokers and navigators. Using this one book, anyone can calculate the shortest or most economical distances between all the major ports in the world.
This edition has a newly improved layout for ease of use, and additional more-frequented ports added.
Reeds Vol 8: General Engineering Knowledge
4th edition L Jackson and T D Morton
ISBN 978-0-7136-8264-9
This eighth volume of Reed's Marine Engineering Series prepares students for the Department of Transport Certificates of Competency in General Engineering Knowledge. It also covers the syllabus for Engineer Cadet courses in the subject. The syllabus and principles involved are virtually the same for all examinations but questions set in Class One require the most detailed answers.
The book follows the same pattern as the other volumes in this series which has proved so successful: emphasis on basic principles, extensive illustrations, worked examples included in the text, practice examples at the end of each chapter and specimen exam questions at the end.
