Maritime Anti-Piracy – The Captain’s Guidebook
This up-to-date and definitive handbook has been produced to help Shipping Companies, CSOs and Captains of all vessels, from the smallest of sailing yachts to the largest of commercial ships, both at anchor and underway. It gives in-depth information on all ways to protect the crew, vessel, and cargo from thieves and armed pirates around the world.
This global guide covers all the high-risk areas from the tranquil backwaters of South America to hostile and dangerous areas such as the Gulf of Aden, Indian Ocean, and the Gulf of Guinea off West Africa.
Peter King has spent his career in the elite and secretive Special Boat Service (SBS), specializing in maritime counter terrorism, and is an expert at boarding ships, oil rigs and shore-based facilities. He has compiled this book drawing on his own knowledge along with input from current Captains from various yachts, superyachts and commercial ships, plus the information obtained from key agencies such as the International Maritime Organization and International Maritime Bureau.
The author has spent the last seven years working in the Gulf of Aden High Risk Area and West Africa providing training, hardening, citadel emplacement and armed/unarmed security. He originally focused on the private sailing and superyacht sector, but widened his scope as hijackings of merchant ships increased; successfully repelling two Somali pirate attack groups.
After reading this book, understanding its guidelines and implementing the practical and physical anti-piracy measures, any transit through a high-risk area, will be a much safer ordeal. The Captain, crew and vessel will be fully prepared for every eventuality with an intimate knowledge of how to react quickly, calmly and professionally.
