CARGO STOWAGE AND HANDLING
The manual provides 484 questions and answers dealing with cargo damage prevention, stowage of general cargo, tanker loading/discharging, ventilation and humidity control, refrigerated cargo, and safety precautions to be observed with regard to preparing the ship to load various cargos that require special handling or stowage. Many of the questions deal with the duties of a mate on watch while handling cargo, including the proper rigging of cargo handling gear. Diagrams are included of some typical cargo gear and its nomenclature as well as sample methods of chocking, slinging and securing cargo.
