A good book for reference if you are thinking of getting into more advanced ship assist tugs and PSVs. Packed with drawings and diagrams (black & white). I would recommend this reference this book to get a handle on the different handling principles if even thinking about working on PSVs and useful for understanding the thrust concepts of dynamic positioning. I deducted 1 star because I like color pictures to better illustrate ideas.
HASH(0xa055c480) out of 5 stars What a great technical book to read and what a great teacher the author is. Nov. 23 2012

I have been deeply reading "Learning to Drive a Z-drive" and have found it irresistible. Surely the author Captain Jeff Slesinger has thought deeply on his ship handling skills and come up with a bestseller.
The author has bared his inner self in coming across to the learner. This book couldn't have been presented any better.

I have learned what I yearned for after reading this wonderful book.

If a mariner was looking to get on board a Z - Drive and think they will steer it as they do a conventional, it would be a great to read this book first even if they did or didn't go to a Z - Drive school. The information in this book will help you if you take time to go through it and take time to understand what the boat will do before jumping into a chair on one.

HASH(0xa0561858) out of 5 stars Now, learn to drive an ASD-tugboat! May 4 2011
By Stefan Thienel - Published on
Format: Paperback
I red about the book in a maritime magazine. Due to the fact that I am collecting all about tugboats and built models I must have this book. It is like a theoretical drive lesson for such a boat. Everything is like I expected. Now I can drive my tugboat model like the real thing.
