Studying for any Certificate of Competency can be a daunting task, not made easier by the need to plough through weighty textbooks and legislative publications. Cargo Notes provides a comprehensive and usable alternative.

This title is split into two sections that cover both dry and liquid cargoes. Cargo Notes provides key points and summaries on all relevant Legislation and Codes and an Operational Overview for all of the main cargo types, from Bulk Carriers, RoRos, Reefers and Containers through to Tankers and Liquefied Gas Carriers.

Dan Swadi, had a career at sea on a wide variety of ships including: Container ships, gas carriers and bulk carriers. In addition to his Masters licence, Dan also has a Masters degree in Marine Policy with a distinctionfrom Cardiff University. Dan wrote this book while working as a lecturer at Glasgow College of Nautical Studies and has since moved on to join Northern Marine Management.

useful Review by Chinthaka Amarasinghe
handy book (Posted on 28/07/2011)
Cargo Notes 2nd Edition Review by Cadet, Mentoring Scheme, The Honourable Company of Master Mariners, November 2009
Cargo Notes 2nd Edition by Dhananjay Swadi is quite possibly the best book/set of notes that I have in my possession as an Officer Cadet on the subject of cargo operations. This is thanks to a number of key factors:Firstly, the book is of a convenient enough size and weight to easily put in one’s luggage and take onboard ship, without requiring something else to be left at home. This is an advantage over similar publications and course notes which are usually a lot bulkier, and difficult to take on ship. Due to its small size it can also fit into the pocket on a boiler suit, and is therefore a useful source of information relating to cargo to have when on deck during operations.
The second factor(s) is ease of use, clarity and relevance. The book is laid out in two sections: dry cargoes and liquid and gas cargoes. Every aspect of cargo which the OOW needs to know is easily indexed for quick use, and contains many colourful diagrams and photos to illustrate clearly the point the author is trying to make. The information itself does not just mumble on about the most finite details as is often the case with most subject notes, instead it focuses on the points the OOW actually needs to know, not all the irrelevant ones as well, and in my opinion it does this very well.

The third factor is reliability. This may seem a bit of an unusual thing to write about, but I have read a number of subject notes, including notes given to Cadets at Warsash, which sometimes contain contradicting and even out of date information, where notes have obviously been compiled using several different older publications. This is not the case with these notes, as just by looking at the bibliography it is clear to see that the most up to date, official publications have been used, which is good for the Cadet preparing for MCA Orals, as well as for current OOWs to keep in line with modern requirements.

The final factor which makes Cargo Notes 2nd Edition by Dhananjay Swadi so good, is the inclusion of annexes at the back, which are an excellent source of reference on principles and operational guidance for Deck Officers when in charge of a cargo watch in port. Eight different MGNs are contained within this section, which also makes it an extremely useful aid to revision for Cadets about to sit their MCA Orals, as it tells them the MCA literature they need to be aware of.'
