THE ABEILLE D'OUESSANT
The waters off the northwest tip of Brittany are among the most treacherous and busiest of any in the world. For centuries the rocks and islands have claimed their victims, but in recent years ships have enjoyed the added protection and support of two permanently manned ocean-going tugs, privately owned but contracted to the French government. The author goes aboard and works alongside the crew through some of the wildest weather of the year.
In the 1800s a twenty-mile stretch of river produced nearly one-quarter of the world's shipping. The heady days of the Clyde have passed but the pride lingers on and the skills and memories are kept alive in an increasingly competitive market by three major shipyards. The author presents a fascinating history of 300 years of Scottish shipbuilding.

THE CONFEDERATE STATES NAVY
Despite being the most popular topic in American history represented by books, television, films and plays, coverage of the Civil War has at best skimmed over, at worst ignored the role played by the Confederate States Navy. This was a small but tireless force that had considerable, if insufficient, effect on the northern fleets and made the most of technological advances and innovations in naval warfare.

THE FIGHTING FORTIES
Of all Herreshoff designs the New York 40 was met with the most negative press from contemporary critics. Nevertheless, those built to the plans proved their worth and became much-loved cruiser-racers. The author offers a comprehensive history of the Herreshoff ugly duckling and explores why they were met with such derision and how they have stood the test of time.
MARILEETHE RESURRECTION OF A FORTY
Marilee was restored at the yard of Bill Cannell in Camden, Maine in 2000. The author reviews the work and follows the yacht on her European tour beginning with the America's Cup Jubilee in 2001.
JERRY ROSE - AFLOAT IN THE ISLAND LIGHT
Many have tried but few have managed to capture on canvas the light and essence of the Bahamas. Sailor-artist Jerry Rose has spent much of his artistic career studying the practices and people of the islands' maritime trades and, as the author discovers, has created a body of work that is both beautiful and an important record of a dying way of life.
