Friends and Terminilogy

Hello to all the seafarers!
I am a navigating officer, currently lecturing at the Maritime University in Russia. I am also much interested in some naval terminology clarification for I have been completing a dictionary for quite a while.
I will be delighted to talk to mariners and also with people who can answer some questions concerning some definitions.

Thank you for the attention to this letter.

Ship registration, ship sale and purchase, ship finance

I live in Malta and I stumbled on this site by chance. Although I haven't yet browsed through it all, it seems to be very interesting and informative. Our law firm practices in corporate law and international tax planning amongst others and would be grateful to pass on any further information on request.
