  In alone, U-boats accounted for the sinking of ships in the North Atlantic. In , Britain’s imports totaled 55 million tons; in , the total was down to 30 million. Britain was losing three times as many ships as her shipyards could build and was on her way to losing the war unless something drastic was done—and quickly. On the night of 14/15 April , a brand-new, supposedly unsinkable ship, the largest vessel in the world at the time, sank on her maiden voyage after ramming an iceberg. Of the 2, people on board only were saved. The rest either drowned or froze to death in the icy-cold waters of the North Atlantic. How could this 'unsinkable' vessel sink and how could the authorities allow her to.

Explore some of the USA’s most iconic cities, charming towns and historic areas on the 1,kilometer Northern Atlantic Coast drive. The journey kicks off in Boston, one of the oldest cities in America, and ends in Washington, D.C., the nation’s capital. Strap in for an unforgettable journey. A 5-year-old proposal to establish a national marine sanctuary among the skeletal ghost ships in Charles County's Mallows Bay has been stalled in Gov. Larry Hogan's office for more than a year.

Shipbuilding is the construction of ships and other floating vessels. It normally takes place in a specialized facility known as a shipyard. Shipbuilders, also called shipwrights, follow a specialized occupation that traces its roots to before recorded history. Here is an encyclopedia of maritime history that, in scope and depth, rivals the expansiveness of the sea itself. The Encyclopedia covers the entire history of seafaring, from ancient Egyptian shipbuilders to Viking sea-raiders, from Nelson and the Napoleonic Wars to the voyages of Cheng Ho, from the European conquerors of the New World to the nuclear submarines and supertankers of today.4/5(1).

Martijn Heijink disentangles the complex needs for Dutch shipbuilding in the colony of New Netherlands (New York) and how those needs echoed throughout the North Atlantic.
