Easter Greetings & good reading from Craig Allen …
Farwell’s Rules of the Nautical Road
Professional mariners, military and civilian, will find this book to be an invaluable reference in understanding the rules of the road and the role these rules play in managing the risk of collision.
The author provides a thorough commentary on the rules and an analysis of collision cases involving abuse of the rules.
Maritime attorneys and judges will find the book continues to be an indispensable reference on collision law as Craig Allen provides a mariner’s insight into how the rules apply in context and their application by the courts and administrative tribunals. This new edition completely revises chapters on the rules pertaining to good seamanship and special circumstances and on restricted visibility, and it vastly expands coverage of the narrow channel rule, traffic separation schemes, and the application of the rules to high-speed craft.
It also extensively revises materials on the look out and risk of collision responsibilities to update coverage on radar and ARPA and to address new technologies, such as integrated bridge systems, automatic identification systems, voyage data recorders and the increasingly active role of VTS.
The first update in ten years, the eighth edition upholds and even surpasses the standards set over the past sixty years of the guide’s publication.
Farwell’s “Rules of the Nautical Road” gives thorough coverage of Maritime Rules, their application & interpretation which is invaluable in the analysis of this case.
Review – A Professional mariner’s reference
This book is the most in depth and thorough presentation on the nautical rules and how they are interpreted that anyone has ever assembled. Filled with references to legal cases and decisions that support the reasons behind each rule, Farwells is used by Admiralty lawyers everyday. The book also traces the history of each rule, and discusses the difference inland and COLREGS rules.
This is a thick, heavy reference that explores every nuance and detail of each rule. It is however, an excellent reference for any professional mariner who ever has command authority on board a vessel.
