      Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for the speedy answer!

        Recommend cargo notes as well if you're doing a bulk order

          Already on the list!

          Also there is a whole series of 'notes' books covering specific ship types in greater detail: oil tanker notes, chemical tanker notes and bulk cargo notes to name a few, could be worth the investment if all your sea time was/will be completed on a single ship type and/or you're interested in working on that type of vessel post qualification.

          i know for many this will seem far too obvious to warrant a mention but the Seaman's Pocketbook guide to COLREGs is probably the best ?3.50 I have ever spent and worth getting from day one as it is never too early for a deck cadet to start learning the Rules of the Road!

            Stability of merchant ships for the beginning officer is a very simple booklet. I dont want to spam but i see lots of officers struggle with stability and its a shame. on Facebook i found a page with nice video with explanations aswell as on youtube.

              The NavBasics books from witherby are excellent. Also the Martin Rhodes stability OOW book.

                Also, if your doing the Foundation Degree then I would highly recommend Navigation for Mates & Masters by Capt. Nadeem Anwar.

                At first I thought it was just another lecturer trying to flog us one of their books, actually it proved to be very useful!
