IC265E ESP Code 2011, 2020 Edition
It’s been a decade since the 2011 ESP Code became mandatory under SOLAS regulations, and this updated version contains all amendments since its adoption, including those which came into force on 1st January this year.
The code establishes a standard for the regular and safe survey of the cargo and ballast areas of oil tankers and bulk carriers, including requirements for renewal, annual and intermediate surveys, survey preparation, documentation, procedures for thickness measurements, and reporting – all set out in a clear, user-friendly format.

The Weather Handbook, 4th Edition
This handbook has been the standard reference for over 20 years for students on Day Skipper and Yachtmaster courses, teaching readers to look at the sky, interpret its signs and, alongside professional forecasts, use this knowledge to predict the coming weather.
The fourth edition has been expanded to grapple the countless new sources of weather information, largely from websites and apps. It gives helpful advice on how best to use and interpret them, including taking a general forecast for a wide area to provide local insight for a specific location.

 Introduction to Shipping
“Shipping is the biggest industry in the world,” asserts Alan Marsh, former CEO of Braemar Seascope, in the foreword to this hugely ambitious book. It seeks to provide an overview of all aspects of shipping, from maritime geography and the types of vessels you’ll encounter to its history, practitioners and key aspects of accounting and laws of carriage. In the process, it does a superb job of demystifying what is still, as Marsh rightly notes, a largely “invisible industry which does not register on most people’s radar”.

Ship Superintendency – An Introduction
Provides understanding of the role of the Ship Superintendent to those considering entering the marine superintendency discipline. It is intended to introduce them to a wide range of duties and responsibilities. It is also meant for those currently in this role who are looking for different thinking and methodologies.
Ship Management International published an interesting article about the history of Marine Society in its Jan/Feb 2021 issue.
