Most seamanship books available to young seamen are of the advanced text-book type, intended for candidates studying for Certificates of Competency as Mate or Master and dealing with the technical subjects connected with their Examinations. Such books are of little use to those who wish to learn the rudiments of seamanship work. For this reason, these pages have been compiled as a book of elementary knowledge for the beginner and also as a reference-book for older deck ratings, especially those who seek information relating to everyday seamanship problems, or who wish to prepare for the qualifying examination for the Certificate of Qualification as Efficient Deck Hand (E.D.H.) or for the Certificate of Competency as A.B., issued by the Department of Trade.
