Shiphandling with Tugs, Second Edition is the most comprehensive text available for the mariner who wants to learn how to safely and effectively operate tugs in assisting ships to and from their berths in ports and anchorages. Captain Jeffrey Slesinger used his extensive knowledge of the industry to bring Reid’s original edition, published in 1986, up to date with current technologies and standards, adding sections on the advances made in tug design, and line and winch technology.
Shiphandling with Tugs, Second Edition includes a new chapter on ship escort with updated and expanded chapters on today’s tugs, including descriptions and illustrations of the latest tractor tug designs and capabilities.
Captain Jeffery Slesinger, a licensed master since 1977, has been operating Z-drive and conventionally propelled tugas for over 20 years in harbor, coastal, and offshore operations. He lives in Seattle, Washington.
