For over 20 years since 1991 the NEVA International Exhibitions and conferences have successfully promoted the massive redevelopment of the Russian commercial maritime industries.
The great success of the NEVA Exhibition was based on the effective presentation of the most modern technologies and equipment available to meet the large-scale demands of the Russian commercial maritime industries and administrations to develop the urgently required renewal of the shipbuilding, shipyard, ship equipment industries, the sea and inland waterways shipping fleets, the marine support sector for the offshore energy expansion and for the ports systems throughout the Russian Federation.
We would like to kindly remind you about our invitation to the 10th Jubilee International Conference on “Marine Navigation and Safety of Sea Transportation” TransNav 2013 organised jointly by the Faculty of Navigation, Gdynia Maritime University and The Nautical Institute from 19 to 21 June 2013 in Gdynia, Poland.

The Deck and Stability Workbook has been revised to reflect changes in the US Coast Guard newly released data base, adding 42 new pages to the Stability section of the workbook.
We have developed this series of training manuals to assist the Merchant Mariner in passing the U.S. Coast Guard Licensing Examinations, from Master 500 GT to 2nd Mate Unlimited Upon Oceans.
These manuals have been developed to augment our current textbooks for Mariners and are modular in design incorporating practical exercises and actual U.S. Coast Guard examination questions with all questions worked-out.
