ABC | Anchors, Propellers, Rudders | Practical Examples


This course analyses different manoeuvres, and the information is backed up with real-life examples to ensure a greater understanding. A series by STANDBYENGINE called the ‘ABC of the Manoeuvre’; this course is the final chapter in the series; you should complete it all to gain a whole perspective.

The lessons in this course will improve your knowledge of ship handling by explaining a mooring situation using four examples of manoeuvring with a propeller, rudder and bow thruster. You will learn what happens inside the manoeuvre and update your knowledge on the Master Pilot exchange. In the final lesson, a real-life situation will be a great learning tool as it gathers all the knowledge you bring and what you have been taught.
