This section explores the link between a rise in competence and productivity within the shipping industry, and the dissemination of printed guides for master mariners during the nineteenth century, pamphlets which provided practical information and guides to their duties from ship owners and charterers, with relevant examples of such literature included. Craig demonstrates the solidity of this link, but concludes that the increase in efficiency remains unquantifiable. The section concludes with a short glossary of terms to assist the reader with specific maritime jargon.
