Support us

Maritimeknowhow's open website is an enormous and continuous endeavour. Therefore, your ideas and contributions would be greatly appreciated.

If you have an interesting maritime subject or article or even a link you would like to see on the internet, but you don't have a website or you think that it would be lost in the maze of internet, we would gladly insert it in our maritimeknowhow website. It would, of course, be inserted under your name and specifications.

How can you help:
  1. By inserting a link to in your own site if you have one.
  2. By giving us any link or information not yet covered in the database of maritimeknowhow, and which you think could be of interest to the maritime world.
  3. by giving us your financial support :
         -  By purchasing one of the books we publish;
         -  By sponsoring
Note: Some topics like "Bill of Lading", "Charterparties", "Navigation", etc. are not printable or copiable, but an e-copy can be purchased as a token of your contribution. (Simply click on Books)

As mentioned before, because it is very costly and time consuming to publish and maintain a very large website such as “maritimeknowhow”, offering thousands of pages of valuable and concise nautical information, we can only do this if you help us.

If you like this site, please give us your support. It will allow us to develop the site further, to make it a valuable tool which will be an immense help at sea, in the office and even at home. 

Any information printed, on video or any other means which could be included in the site, will be welcomed and can be either e-mailed to or mailed to Capt. Pierre Deseck, Karel Janssenslaan 29/3, 8400 Ostend, Belgium.

Any financial contribution, however small or big, will also be appreciated. We leave it to your own discretion on how much you want to contribute. Each donation will be acknowledged and an invoice mailed to you.

Just click on the "Donation" button below to make your payment or click on "Books" to buy one of our books.

We thank you in advance!
