For Motor men:-

Fascinating reading although it is some sixty years since I was in a Liberty engine room.The book had it been available to me would have probably saved some bilge diving to check what went where & why. KIWI

Thank you for posting, very interesting, I always wondered how those other engineers with royal connections used that warm grey mist to get around.

Makes one realise how much I had forgotten, still got my old Reed textbooks in the loft. Just can not bring myself to toss them out. They cost a fortune when I bought them and now are as near as d..m it worthless.

Back in the days when the net was young

http://www.maritime.edu/index.cfm?pg=405

Massachusetts (USA) Maritime Academy had all of the hundreds of pages of required Navigation or Engineering instruction books online.

I just looked and if they are still there I cannot find them.

OTOH the above link is to their current school ship the Kennedy.

Built in 1967 converted 2002-2009 this Gross Registered Tons 13,886, 540 LOA 710 person capacity School Ship has a pair of D-type boilers and a DeLaval 15,500 HP steam turbine for a 20 knot sea speed.

Interesting to me is that there is one classroom for Deck Officers and four for Engineers.

20 knots is a bit fast for only 2500 tons of fuel, I wonder how the vaps are, with 700+ onboard the consumption is going to be high, on iced water alone!

Don't know why Mcafee flags it up, Norton says it's a safe site.
