From Baird Maritime

Your reviewer has always held the opinion that at least 95 per cent of all accidents, at sea, in the air or on land, are human induced. Even mechanical failure can usually be traced to a human cause.

Ships That Changed the World (Video): A 3 DVD Set
Monday, 26 July 2010 10:20


Presented by Colonel Tim Collins

From Baird Maritime:

This offers a well presented if rather British-centric view of the great ships of the twentieth century.

Focussing on the once great old shipyard of Harland and Wolff in Belfast and some of the famous ships it built, such as ‘RMS Titanic’, ‘HMS Glorious’ and ‘SS Canberra’, it used some modern cinema graphic techniques to make its point.

Lessons from the 'Galaxy': Survival and Courage on the Bering Sea
Friday, 14 May 2010 15:41

Captain Dave Shoemaker

From Baird Maritime:

Your reviewer has always felt that anyone who fishes in the Bering Sea for a living has to be mad or desperate – probably both.

Anyway the ‘Galaxy’ was a large (58-metre) freezer longliner that operated from Seattle into the Bering Sea off Alaska.

In October 2002 in 30-knot winds and six-metre seas, the vessel caught fire and was ultimately destroyed.

Captain Shoemaker was a widely experienced, careful and well-prepared master. However, despite his skills and precautions, he still lost three of his crew of 26.

They were a long way from anywhere and much of their safety and survival gear was consumed by the fire. This epic tale describes how Shoemaker and most of his crew survived despite overwhelming odds. Safety training was a vital factor.

A dramatic way to improve safety consciousness. A very valuable case study.

Honorable Survivor: Mao’s China, McCarthy’s America and the Persecution of John S. Service
Wednesday, 17 February 2010 10:00

 

Author: Lynne Joiner
Publisher: Naval Institute Press

From Baird Maritime:

The American people and the American political system have many admirable qualities. Unfortunately, however, they have a tendency to occasionally veer away on Kafkaesque tangents. These tend to be influenced by some of the appalling intelligence and intellectual blunders of the State Department.

Portable Fire Extinguishers: Your First Line of Defense
Wednesday, 04 November 2009 14:25


From Baird Maritime:

Portable fire extinguishers are designed to handle small spot fires in the hope they can be prevented from becoming large, dangerous conflagrations.

It is imperative, therefore, that all vessel crews know how to operate and, more importantly, the capabilities of all the extinguishers aboard.

Short of actually emptying those fire extinguishers over a training fire, there is probably no better way of learning their operation than by studying this video. It is clear, concise and simple.

Usefully, it has Chinese, Russian, Spanish and English sub-titles.
