This paper discusses the change at sea which has been a continual process, so seeing change as something that has happened over the last ten, twenty or even a hundred years is incorrect. Most equipment changes have improved the way we do the job and, apart from feeling that the manuals for the more complicated electronic equipment could be simpler, coping with these changes has come naturally. But the sea itself has not changed, nor has the way of the ship on them.
