MacElrevey's Shiphandling for the Mariner, first published in 1983, is addressed primarily to the practicing mariner who already possesses some degree of professional knowledge, experience, and training. In a nontechnical style, and with illustrations, the author stresses maneuvers routinely used by working pilots and masters, with special attention to directional stability, shallow water effects, squat, and aids such as variable pitch propulsion, electronic reference instrumentation, and tractor tugs. All maneuvers used in docking, undocking, and shiphandling in restricted waters are covered, as well as less common maneuvers: docking at single point and multiple buoy moorings, use of anchors in shiphandling, offshore lightering, and transiting of locks and canals.

As a result of major shipping disasters on all coasts, the safety of vessel operations in U.S. ports and waterways and the effectiveness of waterway designs are under increased scrutiny. But are traditional waterway design practices that rely heavily on rules of thumb and conservatism providing adequate margins of safety while keeping the overall costs of waterway projects within the funding capabilities of local project sponsors? Shiphandling Simulation addresses how computer-based simulation can be used to improve the cost- effectiveness of waterway design while satisfying safety objectives. The book examines the role of computer simulation in improving waterway design, evaluates the adequacy of data input, explores the validity of hydrodynamic and mathematical models, assesses required and achievable accuracy of simulation results, and identifies research needed to establish shiphandling simulation as a standard design aid. Case studies of waterway design efforts employing shiphandling simulation are analyzed and lessons learned are identified.
