Other matters

  • A. L. Marshall


The problem with a book such as this lies as much in deciding what to omit as what to include. Consequently, concluding with a chapter devoted to ‘other matters’ represents an opportunity to touch on important aspects which may have been barely referred to previously. Two in particular ought to be discussed a little further although to some extent that is again a personal preference. They concern floating structures and inspection, maintenance and repair, the last three topics being commonly unified.
