From The Art of Dredging Captain Marc Van de Velde tells a story with humor and some good advice.

Maritime Engineers have evolved from:
"Engineers were a new breed of human beings, closely related to cavemen."
"Nowadays, engineers are highly specialized. You cannot take them out, or the whole ship goes to smithereens within a day."
