The ECDIS Blues
Author: Capt. Vincent Fernandes
Publisher: Vincent Fernandes
Quality: Scanned pages
Pages count: 249
Description: The ECDIS Blues is an attempt to systematically answer those nagging doubts in the minds of a navigator. It is a comprehensive guide to passage planning on the ECDIS. Several thumb rules, recommendations and quick checks have been included to make the ECDIS easier to operate.
The book is based on the IMO performance standards and therefore applies to all ECDIS makes and models. Over 160 images including ECDIS screenshots have been included in this book to give the reader a better understanding of the concepts.
Several ECDIS assisted grounding incidents have been used to highlight the most common issues faced by the navigator. Topics such as CatZOC and Contour settings have been covered by taking a practical approach.
A chapter has been dedicated to raising proficiency by listing simple tasks that a navigator can do on the ECDIS while on board. This book will be a revelation for both the experienced second mate who feels confident in using the ECDIS as well as the nervous Captain who may not yet be very confident in using the ECDIS. The ECDIS Blues has been printed in full colour.
The book is intended to draw focus on the practical aspect of passage planning when using the ECDIS.
