    NAVIGATION FOR MASTERS. FOURTH EDITION.
    By D J House. Hardback, 1.43kg, 195mm x 250mm, 380 pages, colour illustrations, charts, line drawings. Published 2012.
    This latest edition of “Navigation for Masters” has been issued to ensure that current and future Master Mariners are kept up to date with the modern concepts and innovations affecting the safe passage throughout the maritime environment.

    New regulations, introducing Long Range Identification and Tracking of vessels have been introduced. The need for Ice reporting in the high latitudes and with greater detail, in the form of the ‘egg code’ has become a necessity. While shipbuilding of the larger and deeper draught vessels continues to be exercised, creating revision and expansion of deep water routes.

    Electronics and digital advances have given the maritime industry ECDIS and GPS, now as dominant features. It is essential that our experienced Masters, meet the challenges associated with these major changes while at the same time not lose sight of the basic principles of effective watch keeping. The importance of training and lifelong learning is as much a part of the successful voyage as the fuel is to the engines.

    HOW TO READ A NAUTICAL CHART, A Complete Guide to Understanding & Using Electronic and Paper Charts.
    By Nigel Calder. Paperback, 0.62kg, 215mm x 275mm, 270 pages. Full colour and monochrome photographs and drawings. Published 2012.
    Charts are your most fundamental and versatile navigational tool. Today's nautical charts can be read on smart phones, chartplotters, GPS units, and tablet devices like the iPad; but in addition to having a thorough understanding of chart symbols and abbreviations, using today's charts to your best, and safest, advantage also requires an understanding of the chartmaking process, the differences in electronic chart formats, and an awareness of the limits of accuracy in positions and soundings.
    Did you know, for example, that the position provided by your GPS unit may be much more accurate than the chart on which your position is shown? That the discrepancy bwtween the two could land you and your boat on a reef? That a wreck symbol surrounded by a dotted circle means it is considered dangerous? That there are four different kinds of rock symbols, each with a different meaning? And that the definition of "danger" has changed over time and will depend on the age of your charts?
    In How to Read a Nautical Chart, trusted boating authority Nigel Calder answers these and hundreds of other questions clearly and concisely. In addition to thoroughly explaining the basic symbology of U.S. and international charts, Calder explores the latest in electronic chart developments, including 3-D charts showing the sea floor, charts whose content is user-generated, and charts that show docks and marinas with real-time water depth. Calder also provides much-needed advice on choosing an electronic chart system for your boat.
    How to Read a Nautical Chart - which also contains ALL of Chart No. 1 - should be in every navigator's electronic or paper library.
