TAKING A PRACTICAL VIEW OF VOYAGE ESTIMATING

This is the concluding article in a series of ten on the subject of estimating voyage expenses. It notes that the series has tried to simplify the complexities of voyage estimating by examining the expense aspects in a logical fashion and from a practical viewpoint. It is also pointed out that a substantial number of tramp owners avoid voyage employment altogether, concentrating only on timecharters. Some pursue this policy to avoid voyage estimating and so overlook an opportunity to maximize a vessel's earning potential. The author hopes that the series can be helpful in changing this situation, developing confidence in one's abilities to direct a multimillion dollar investment around the world on the strength of one's own calculations.
