Electrical Boats and Navigation, Vol. V
Reprint of the original 1894 text by T. C. Martin and J. Sachs; with new Introduction by William C. Swanson and Afterword by Bill Durham
So little changed, so much forgotten! Read the foundational text on electric personal watercraft, steam- electric boats, submarines, canal boats, rental fleet operations, charging, motors, storage batteries, etc. Learn about early French, German and English electrics, and details of the original Electric Boat Companys boats at the Worlds Columbian Exposition.
See drawings of original electric launches, rowboats, catamarans, paddlewheelers, sub- marines, dirigible torpedoes, canal boats, etc. and collectors can use the text and illustrations to identify earliest motors, controllers, batteries, accessories and electric boat artifacts. For boat builders, naval architects, or the research library, this text details engineering fundamentals, and as a survey of early electric develop- ment, it fills a gap in history of technology literature. Until now, only one copy was known at the Library of Congress.
