The seventh edition of this classic marine textbook is now available for the first time in paperback. This highly respected book instructs both students and sea-going engineers in the operation, care and maintenance of the auxiliary machinery and apparatus on board ship and is essential reading for marine engineers preparing for British Certificates of Competency examinations, US Licenses and similar qualifications elsewhere.



Designed for ease of use, the detailed treatment and practical orientation of the subject matter is presented in a very accessible manner. The inclusion of suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter is of particular use to students and all those interested in any related titles. Alongside this, there is also sufficient theoretical background to enable the reader to fully understand the principles involved.
