An overview of seamanship for the naval officer

"Seamanship : Fundamentals for the Deck Officer" is intended as a basic seamanship manual for officers in training for US Naval and US Coast Guard service. It is a fairly complete overview of the basic knowledge an officer must be familiar with, covering just about everything from splicing rope/cable and the use of pulleys to the organization of watches and ship command. One of the great things about this book is its liberal use of diagrams. The book is peppered with them, and their placement does a great deal to make the sometimes very complex content more readable and understandable. I'm sure there are newer editions out since this one (I believe there's one named "Annapolis Guide to Seamanship" or something similar), but as it is, I found "Seamanship" quite informative and even useful. It certainly helped me understand the body of knowledge a deck officer must be comfortable with... and I learned something too. I now know how to keep rope in good condition and can splice a wire cable correctly. Yay for me!
