The River Great Ouse and Its Tributaries

Starting at the head of navigation at Kempston, upstream of Bedford, this guide takes you downstream along the full length of the navigable River Great Ouse and then up its accessible river tributaries.

This seventh edition has been revised with new photos, updated technical and local information, and covers 60 miles of navigable waterways, including the tidal section to Kings Lynn and gems such as the Cambridge Backs World Heritage site.

This guide has been written and updated by Chris Howes, Deputy National Chairman, Eastern Region Chairman and past Peterborough Branch Chairman of the Inland Waterways Association. Chris has spent much of his life living on or near the River Great Ouse and is a knowledgeable enthusiast for the area. His navigation notes are the result of his most recent on-the-water research, enriched with supplementary narrative and photographs highlighting numerous points of interest. With user-friendly design and layout, information on moorings, facilities and services is enhanced with quick reference tables alongside the plans.
For anyone planning to explore these waterways, this is your invaluable, don’t-leave-home-without-it guide.

Thomas Stowage 10th Edition

As with previous editions of Thomas’ Stowage, revisions will be found in all parts of the book, based on new legislation, new commodities and improved methods of handling and carriage. Incidents continue to occur with liquefaction of bulk cargoes as well as losses of containers from the large ships now in service. Thomas’ Stowage addresses these and other issues as far as it is able, and by pointing the reader in the direction of other sources which may assist them in the satisfactory loading, carriage and discharge of their cargo.

The Glossary of Cargo Handling and Shipping Terms has been enhanced with a number of new entries. The terms have been obtained from a variety of sources and suggestions for further entries or amendments will be most welcome.

Thomas’ Stowage continues to be regarded as the definitive reference on the subject and is recommended by many organisations with an interest in the safe handling and carriage of cargoes.

RRP £115.00

MetMeteorology for Seafarers, 6th Edition

Commander C. R. Burgess, former Meteorological Officer in the UK Meteorological Office, Bracknell and in the Royal Navy, completed Meteorology For Seamen in 1950 soon after he joined the Marine Society as Secretary. His book has been a standard work for 30 years, combining the factual presentation of the subject with the then popular question and answer format. A further revision became necessary soon after his death in 1982, and the present authors – Lieutenant-Commander Richard Frampton & Patt Uttridge – with some trepidation accepted the task. 

So many advances have been made in this science and the presentation of text books so changed, that it was decided to present a completely rewritten and revised text with new illustrations. The question and answer format has been abandoned as it is out of place in a book with aims to present the fundamentals of the subject and highlight those aspects of particular interest to all seafarers.

It does not aim to provide a simple explanation, as this is regularly and professionally done by the radio, television and the more elementary textbooks, nor does it delve into the highly complex explanations provided by research papers. The interaction of the seas and the atmosphere is considered, but no attempt has been made to treat this important subject fully, since there are many excellent works to which the seafarer should refer to improve his understanding.

Meteorology for Seafarers is therefore a technical book which aims to explain the complexities of the atmosphere and provide the information needed for professional seafarers aspiring to first class certificates of competency. If at the same time it encourages the seafaring reader to investigate and understand more clearly, the forces of nature which affect his daily life, then it will have achieved the full ambitions of its authors.
