This book is, in effect, the Towmasters Handbook. It uses Captain Hancox’s considerable towing and installation experience to bring the planning, execution and techniques necessary for success to life. Supported by over 300 explanatory diagrams, hundreds of ‘action’ on the job photographs, countless examples and tables, it covers every phase of the operation from pre-tow out planning to riser hook-up and first oil.

The Oilfield Seamanship series describes and explains the majority of standard techniques used in marine operations of the offshore oilfield. The series concentrates on Towing. Anchor Handling, Barge Mooring and Moving, the Operation of Jack-Up type vessels afloat, the practice of stability control on semi-submersibles and ballast control techniques on such vessels. The series of books are organised such that particular volumes are relevant to personnel on specific vessel types.
