Overview

Shiphandling Fundamentals for Littoral Combat Ships and the New Frigates is the first authoritative book on the theory and practice of driving U.S. Navy waterjet ships, originally known as “Littoral Combat Ships” (LCS). Authored by a career shipdriver who was part of the first generation of LCS commanding officers, every method presented within these pages has been validated through the successful development of experienced LCS shiphandlers, including ensigns, department heads, and even commanding officers. Though it is based on shiphandling theory, this book is meant to be a practical guide for both novice shiphandlers and those already experienced on propeller-driven ships.

Gagliano’s work serves as a book of best practices, offering advice to maximize training opportunities in the simulator and to exercise complete control over the ship with waterjets. This book is the definitive guide for any shiphandler assigned to one of the Navy’s new frigates.
