By Jim Crossley

Monitor warships mounted the biggest guns ever deployed by the Royal Navy, and played an undeniably important part in Allied efforts during World War I and World War II. Built as cheap and "disposable" from ship scraps, monitor warships astonished allies and enemies alike with their devastating ability to accurately reach targets up to ten miles or more inland. This volume covers the origins of monitors and their evolution from birth as eighteenth century bomb ketches to the heavily armored warships of World War II. The design and construction of the various classes of monitor are examined as well as the warship's effectiveness in comparison with other classes of ships. Quantity Available: 1.

Dockmanship

By David Owen Bell

Cornell Maritime Press, USA, 1994. Second Printing. Paperback. Near Fine. 100 pages. Covers have no creasing. Corners of covers are lightly bumped. Spine is uncreased. Pages are clean and unmarked and in excellent condition. Dockmanship, according to author Bell, is "the art, skill, and practice of safely berthing and unberthing a vessel." Anyone who's ever spent time observing the action at a marina or boat ramp will concede that the way the docking skill is practiced by many recreational boaters today can hardly be considered an "art." Here, finally, is a book that provides the needed information to turn any skipper -- even a novice -- into a master of the docking art. Captains who feel they already perform well behind the helm will enjoy reviewing the standard and advanced techniques contained in this easily understood manual. The basics of rudders, propellers, lines, and fenders used on small to medium-sized boats are completely explored. For each type of propulsion (inboard, outboard, single-screw, double-screw, and sail), techniques are described for maneuvering port side to, starboard side to, stern in, and bow in, as well as for getting away and handling the boat in close quarters. For each of these situations, the author also clarifies the effects of wind and current. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Ships & the Sea; ISBN: 0870334255. ISBN/EAN: 9780870334252.
