Daily direct contact with people who aspire to a satisfying career on ships lifts the veil on the missing link between theory and practice. From this awareness, Standbyengine is born: the desire to provide - through videos, articles, publications and direct contact - the possibility, to those who want to condense their theoretical knowledge, to draw from points of view by pushing the practice ahead, supported by the necessary theory. We started with four videos that make up the fundamentals of the manoeuvre and then move on with sections that will lead those who follow us, explore and learn manoeuvring's art. There will be examples of manoeuvres actually performed and tricks of the trade.
