Dag Pike draws on his experience as merchant navy captain, fast boat

navigator and boat safety tester for RNLI lifeboats to focus on a wide

range of disasters at sea. He compiles a wide range of accounts of

yachts, motorboats and commercial vessels running into difficulty as a

result of poor navigation, fog, miscalculation, human error, weather

conditions etc and analyses in a readable and entertaining fashion what

caused the disaster, what went wrong, how it was dealt with and the

lessons learned from it.


range from the Fastnet disaster, powerboat races, boats run down in the

Channel, to trawlers pulled under by submarines, ferry accidents and

tanker and cargo ship disasters. The incidents include grounding,

collision, fire, sinking, ice and storms, and each chapter has an

example from the Marine Accident Investigation Bureau who monitor

incidents at sea.

This book is a fascinating read for all who go afloat either for

business or pleasure, and for anyone interested in just why disasters

happen at sea.
