Digital Ship Magazine - Complete Set - 2006
This monograph prepared by William Kirkland was specifically published to provide all interested parties with the first hand information relating to the Destroyer Squadron 18 which participated in the critically important naval battle upon which the overall success of the Europe campaign depended. The experience at Omaha Beach could be viewed as typical of most United States naval ships that were engaged at Normandy.
From the other side, it appears quite clear from the thorough research conducted by the author, that this squadron together with the British counterparts, had a major influence on the breakout and the overall success of the naval campaign that followed and realized. Subject contributions have certainly provided a sound basis for the discussion to be held among the veterans of that war and for the future researches to be performed by the war historians, and also as a professional account of the naval actions supporting the Normandy landings.
The story told by the author reports on the events that took place at the Omaha Beach as they were seen from the ashore/afloat and illuminated by the eyewitnesses. The main declared objective of this report was to intimate the relationships between the soldiers of both First and Twenty-Ninth Divisions that really helped make that glorious victory possible.

Very informative source covering virtually all aspects to the design and construction of the boat. It is mainly intended for the people who are commencing the projects starting with a clearly bare hull of the boat between forty and sixty-five feet range willing to properly develop a technical specification for the completion on the basis of the total performance of the system. Subject specification may be given to the yacht builders or used for the do-it-yourself projects.
The content of this book is based on the technical construction specification for the motor yacht Sharina, a fifty-five feet trawler which the author of this title is intending to build. The objective of the design of Sharina was to create a relatively small offshore and coastwise yacht for living aboard and also with some additional requirements to serve as a ocean voyager. The publication explains the original intent of the design and demonstrated why certain design decisions are made.
Note that not every single choice is discussed in the book and it covers only those considered key differentiating factors relating to the total system performance of trawlers. The readers will find all required information concerning the hull features and construction, electrical installations, safety matters, HVAC systems, steering and propulsion arrangements, security issues etc.
