    Depends on what you need to know.

    There will be some marine engineering books in the library about the different types. I think the bridge procedures guide has a section on emergency steering systems. Solas has the related legal requirements.

      What specifically do you need to know about steering gear? I think the seamanship techniques book by DJ House might have some stuff in it (not 100% sure but it is massive and has pretty much everything else in it). I imagine your college library will have a copy.

          MSN 1671 for regulations on construction
          SOLAS Chapter V Regulation 26 for Testing and Drills

          An Introduction to Marine Engineering by DA Taylor will give you detailed technical information if you are interested.

          I am sure the library will have lots of books on the subject!!

            The big blue bible for ETO's i think has the basic electrical stuff, "practical marine electrical knowledge" should be able to get it in the library at STC, for the rules and regulations check out SOLAS, this has all the stuff that needs to be checked and how oftern. If you know any one on ship then it would help asking them what they do, as a lot may do different weekly, monthly even if not required on the different steering gear control.

                Unless STC have thrown out some books they have multiple copies of all the above mentioned books.......occasionally they sell off tatty copies for pennies compared to new cost......keep an eye out and get them if you can

                No I do not report things from here to them as they are quite able to come and read this stuff for themselves.
