Ship handling is an art rather than a science. However, a ship handler who knows a little of the science will be better at his art. Knowledge of the science will enable easy identification of a ship's manoeuvring characteristics and quick evaluation of the skills needed for control. This guide will help any ship handler to improve their skills.

The purpose of this guide is to provide some insight into what can go wrong and why, why ships are designed the way they are, why they handle the way they do and how to berth them. In the final chapter, there is advice on pilotage. On its own, the guide will not teach you how to become a ship handler, but it does provide background materials to help a good ship handler become a better one.

The Standard P&I Club’s loss prevention programme focuses on test practice to avert those claims that are generally described as avoidable, and which often result from crew error or equipment failure. In its continuing commitment to safety at sea and the prevention of accidents, casualties and pollution, the Club issues a variety of publications on safety-related subjects, of which this is one.
