I started building this website in 2007 based on research into the history of ships and shipping. After that, I got carried away; you can see what is here by clicking on menu.

There is a Feedback page. I welcome questions and will help you if I can. If you spot any errors please let me know. Other comments will be added to the visitors book.


I add more material to the site over time and you can see what I have completed recently and 'work in progress' on the relevant page.

A few years back, I visited USS Cassin Young at Boston Massachusetts. Sadly the museum curators wouldn't let me fire her quadruple 40mm Bofors gun but made me very welcome.
