A useful book, made possible by our friends at the SF Maritime Park Association.

Ship Modeler

Somebody on Model Ship World recently posted a link to a book that’s available online. I checked it out and this is a copy of a book written by Commodore S.B. Luce, of the U.S. Navy for the U.S. Naval Academy in 1891. The book is called Seamanship, The Equipping and Handling of Vessels Under Sail or Steam.

titleThe text of the book has put transcribed and available thanks to the wonderful folks of the San Francisco Maritime National Park Association.

Access the book online here: Seamanship.
