c1990. A book of its time but still containing some really interesting information. I learnt something about the design of ships and just how difficult a task it is to make sure that the ship is loaded correctly. Many of these disasters seem to be a sequence of unfortunate events. Written by somebody who had extensive sailing experience, the chapters focus more on the nautical skills and ship design than the human experience which makes it more of a meaty read than some others that I have read. Hint- do not read this before going on a cruise. His wife had recently been in poor health, and it had been more than a year since his last vacation, which added to the stress.

To complicate matters his relationship with his chief officer was marred by ill feeling.
