CARRYING CARGO by Gwenn R. Boardman


Email this review


Logging the S.S. President Adams around the world: qualifications of the Captain; composition and responsibilities of the crew; planning and handling stowage of different kinds of cargo; maneuvering out of port; terminology and techniques of navigation; operation of the power plant; figuring provisions, preparing and serving food: housekeeping generally; quarantine and customs procedures upon landing; paperwork aboard and ashore; routine maintenance and safety measures. In sum, a highly detailed manual, best suited to boys who intend to ship out, with rudimentary info on officers' schools and making it ""up through the hause pipe"" (the ranks).
