THE HISTORY OF NAVIGATION

This is my latest book to be published and it is available from the publishers, Pen and Sword Ltd or from all good bookshops and on line of course. It cover the whole history of navigation right from the early days 5000 years ago through to the latest satellite systems with also a glimpse into the future. It was a fascinating book to research and write and is the first complete book on the subject for about 50 years.

POWERBOAT DESIGN AND PERFORMANCE

This book has now been finished and is with the publishers with publication expected in September this year, In addition to the chapters that I have written covering all aspects of modern powerboats design it has short sections written by many of the top powerboat designers around the World so that the book offers a wide perspective on the design of both dislacement and planing powered boats. This is thought to be the first attempt in modern times to analyse all the factors that go into the design of modern powerboats and so the book should become a classic of its generation.
