The ship addressed in this release, "Alert", was one of the huge number of armed cutters built with the ultimate intention to supplement the British Navy Fleet in the period 1763-1835. These ships were small-sized and swift and they were mostly deployed for the relatively minor roles like conveying dispatches, inshore patrolling and reconnaissance duties; in addition to the above, subject vessels were also providing assistance to the Revenue service.
The book prepared by Peter Goodwin features an excellent and detailed description of the ship including the origins, concept and other details, with the technical information being supplemented with more than a hundred of perspective and 3-view drawings. Peter Goodwin is also the author of two other publications which belong to the AOTS series and depicting the Blandford and Granado ships. Approximately one third of the book provides readers with the thorough but concise description of the hull and equipment, as well as the service.
The rest of the publication is models and drawings, labeled diagrams and plans of nearly every piece of equipment contained on board. This all makes this book a truly irreplaceable information source for ship model makers and other categories of marine enthusiasts.
