New Publication due May 2011. A History of Binnacles. Pamela Burns-Balogh. A binnacle is the housing for the compass, magnets, and soft iron objects that make it possible for a ship to go from one port to another. Most binnacles did not survive, ships were destroyed, binnacles were scrapped for the metals, and compasses were updated. The only knowledge we have of some binnacles is through the photographic record. This is a history of the development and styles of binnacles from the 16th to the 20th century. The book covers the earliest cabinet binnacles in the 17th century to the complex binnacles of 1960ís. Archival photographs, photographs from museums, old journals, patent drawings and descriptions, and photographs from nautical antique dealers are included to illustrate the history of binnacles.

'International Medical Guide for Ships' shows designated first-aid providers how to diagnose, treat, and prevent the health problems of seafarers on board ship.

'International Medical Guide for Ships - 3rd Edition' contains fully updated recommendations aimed to promote and protect the health of seafarers and is consistent with the latest revision of the World Health Organization (WHO) Model List of Essential Medicines and the 'International Health Regulations (2005) - Fourth Annotated Edition' (ISBN 9241580380, available below). The International Labour Organization's (ILO) Maritime Labour Convention 2006 stipulates that all ships shall carry a medicine chest, medical equipment, and a medical guide. The International Medical Guide for Ships supports a main principal of that convention; to ensure that seafarers are given health protection and medical care as comparable as possible to that which is generally available to workers ashore. By carrying this guide on board ships and following its instructions countries can both fulfill their obligations under the terms of the Maritime Labour Convention 2006 and ensure the best possible health outcomes for their seafaring population.

British Maritime Doctrine BR 1806. Ministry of Defence (MoD). 3rd Edition. BR-1806. British Ministry of Defence. May 2004 Contains authoritative and comprehensive guidance on the employment of maritime power. This edition has been updated from the 2nd Edition (1999) against a rapidly changing strategic background that has included the strategic shock of the terrorist attacks of September 11th 2001 and a subsequent reappraisal of Defence Strategic Guidance. World-wide operations by UK forces in the last 5 years have seen the Royal Navy�s operational concept of the Maritime Contribution to Joint Operations (MCJO), developed during the 1998 Strategic Defence Review, evolve into doctrine. This is reflected in this edition, although many maritime doctrinal principles remain enduring. The subjects addressed by the central chapters include: maritime environment; the distinctive features of the sea and the attributes of maritime forces; the doctrinal principles of sea control, maritime power projection and maritime manoeuvre. A bibliographic essay contains references to the principal available works on maritime doctrine that may be used to develop a further understanding of the subject.

Design of Ships' Structures.
D.W. Chalmers, MoD. 1993.
This book is unique in presenting the methods for the design of ships' structures. These methods are applicable to any medium or large vessel designed by direct calculation as well as to the warship hulls on which the book was originally based, as these are invariably designed without recourse to classification society rules. Taking as its starting point an assumed functional specification, it shows how a structure can be created to meet this requirement. Means of estimating consistent values of loads and strength are developed and the process is illustrated by an example that evolves through a number of chapters. Although designs will obviously vary in practice and individual designers will have their own criteria for their work this publication nevertheless makes numerous recommendations for standards that might be adopted. An extensive bibliography is also included to guide users to the appropriate detailed analytical methods to be found in other publications. Hardcover, with illustrations, xiv + 484 pp.

Report of the Re-Opened Formal Investigation into the Loss of the MV Derbyshire.
Justice Colman, DETR. 2000.
In September 1980 the Merchant Vessel Derbyshire disappeared without trace during a violent storm in the Pacific about 350 miles south east of Japan. She was an oil/bulk/ore carrier, and the largest British ship ever lost at sea. All those on board perished including 42 members of crew and two of their wives. On paper the Derbyshire was a young ship with a good safety inspection record and an experienced crew. A formal investigation between 1987-88 produced inconclusive findings partly because the exact location of the wreck was still unknown. In 1994 an independently financed search located the Derbyshire, and an official survey was ordered. The subsequent report from the appointed assessors imputed negligence on behalf of the crew but also acquitted the design and construction of the vessel. In 1998 the Government announced that the formal investigation would be reopened and held in the High Court. This report presents the findings of the investigation conducted between April and July 2000. The most far-reaching recommendations included in this report concern the design and the international specification regulations of the compartment hatches on bulk carriers. The report concludes that the failure of such a hatch was the most likely cause for the sinking of the Derbyshire. The findings in this case reverse those arrived at in 1994, and exonerates the Derbyshire's crew of poor seamanship. This report includes sections covering all aspects of the evidence and research covered in this case. An accompanying CD-ROM gives access to full transcripts of the case hearings as well as to animations of simulation tests carried out on models of the ship. Paperback + CD-ROM, iv + 214 pp.
