All Volunteer Mariner out there!, 24 Jan. 2003
As a new member of the local MVS Unit I found this book a gem in helping me pass part of the foundation course, sadly now a little out of date, mines being the 1973 edition, it still remains as informative as ever. The pleasure it has given me in progressively being able to identifying the wide variety of seas borne vessels has realy made my free time activities more fulfilling. A pocket sized delight - a must for all those new to maritime activities.
