Description

Voyage planning with ECDIS

ISBN: 978-94-92083-71-5

Every year a considerable number of vessels is detained by Port State Control because of deficiency code 10127: Insufficient voyage or passage plan! Hence issues with voyage plans are counted among the top 5 claims. Just to have ‘some’ voyage plan turns out to be insufficient – the demand is to have a proper plan, compliant to rules. To compose a comprehensive voyage plan, however, a wide range of aspects has to be taken into account. Not only for a young graduate this might become a challenge, also to the experienced navigator some of the regulatory demands for a ‘berth to berth’ voyage plan may have faded of outdated.

Whether for a fresh navigator or an old hand – this book is targeted to provide a profound hands-on advice on how to best compile a suitable voyage plan fully in line with the principles of IMI Resolution A.893(21). Following a process-guided structure each chapter starts with a short re-compilation of the theoretical principals. Embattled with the re-enforced knowledge the reader is challenged by a concrete example of a commercial vessel sailing down the East coast of the USA. Following a step-by-step guidance, the book offers for each task a sample solution, including the usage of modern ECDIS equipment.

This guide can be used in manifold ways: whether you read it sequentially from top to bottom, or as the need arises. For an even better understanding, parallel hands-on practice of the exercises will intensify your knowledge. For that an online simulation, which completely covers all exercises of the book can be ordered under www.safebridge.net.
