This title incorporates the capabilities of the multi-purpose ocean-going tug types as applied to ocean towing, salvage and rescue. The evolution of this type from the early tugs to the coastal and ocean tugs, and the anchor handling tug and supply vessels is fully described. The hydraulic towing winch has been added to the towing winch chapter. The salvage and diving section has been retained and updated, and the appendices have been revised and extended to reflect many current rules and regulations pertaining not only to practical tug masters, but also to all those with responsibility for maritime activity both ashore and afloat. Containing important elements of seafaring life - that of towing, salvage, rescue and safety - the book is for all those likely to be involved with any maritime emergency, especially in the light of Lord Donaldson's Report, "Safer Ships, Cleaner Seas".
