Hi Alain,

I got the STCW from Boat Books Australia and the IAMSAR from work.
The IAMSAR has been superseded by the 2010 edition but i also have a copy of the changes...


Boat Books Australia

Distributors of the IMO stuff can be found at...
IMO | Home

Cheers
John

Thanks John
On the IMO website, I found a French distributor that stocks the IMO books. They are less expensive that I thought.
