Marine Engineering and propulsion topics


Over the last 40 years, I have collected a number of articles, excerpts and references relevant to maritime history, ship restoration and maritime safety.

I have recently been downsizing and so have scanned many of these items to save space. A number of these are provided below.

Unfortunately, a number do not contain details of the book from which they came. Any information that helps to identify the source would be much appreciated.
