[quote=givemeprops;21895]I am a recent Great Lakes Maritime academy graduate and I was wondering if there were any other good to read tech books about Hydraulics, Diesel theory and other engineering handbooks. The ones we were told to get were not very good and was curious what the other academy cadets had for books and what some of the “old timers” used to get a nice foundation.
I have a good understanding of it all but just want to sharpen my knowledge a little more now that I am in the industry. Thanks in advance.[/quote]
[B]Here is quick link to “Engines,Propulsion” under [I]Smart Search[/I] @ Professional Mariner you can always print some and take with if you don’t have internet. Articles and Mags are more portable too.[/B]
[B]Also, check with local Seafarer’s Ministry for donated publications, they can be very resourceful, lots of contacts there.[/B]
