Authored by a man with extensive experience in salvage operations, this is a comprehensive treatment of ship salvage in all its aspects, but written in plain language. The early chapters introduce the concepts of marine salvage and explain how the parties involved in a salvage operation relate. Ship construction and naval architecture as they pertain to possible later salvage of a ship are explained, and the types of casualties are described. The fine points of surveys, salvage plans and processes, rigging, restoring buoyancy, lifting, machinery and equipment used in salvage, cargo handling, and the special aspects related to salvage of tankers are discussed in complete detail. Casualty management is also covered. The book's appendices include necessary salvage contracts, sample forms, and checklists for all possible situations.
