This guide provides a wealth of practical information on completion of the wide range of marine reports, including conducting a survey and gathering information, conforming with legal requirements, writing a complete and effective report, text formatting and presentation of diagrams and photographs. It is an invaluable source of reference for every professional marine engineer.

Just as there are many skills required to complete a survey or project, there are many factors that contribute to a good report. Many report authors agree that 50% of the work is carrying out the fact finding or research and 50% is compiling the report. It is therefore not sufficient to be technically capable alone; the author must also have good report writing skills. This publication demonstrates best practice to help improve reporting writing skills.

The publication advises on every stage of the reporting process, from receipt of instructions, assessing the purpose and type of the report, evidence gathering and interviewing, observing the correct protocols, structure of the report, writing style, use of terminology versus jargon, etc.

The appendices present 11 completed sample reports, including pre-purchase condition surveys, damage reports, off-hire survey report, personal injury investigation report, speed and angle of blow assessment report, etc.
