This is Ships & Sailing, Volume One, Number Eight, January 1952. Contents include: "Menhaden, the sea's oil wells" - (article includes numerous photos) - the tiny oily fish are not desirable for human consumption and their odor is dreadful, but they are the backbone of an important U.S. industry; "Spritty barge" - (article includes numerous photos) - a unique sailing craft was developed in the early 1800's to navigate the precarious Thames Estuary. You can still see some of them on London River; "Rescue in the North Atlantic" - (article includes several photos) - although chances of saving the 25 men aboard the sinking Antinoe seemed nil, Captain Fried doggedly stood by for 85 tense hours, awaiting the outcome; "Alexander McDougall: man with a mission" - (article includes numerous photos) - the young Scottish immigrant had ships on his mind: bigger and better ships for the 'sweet-water seas' - so, he built them; "Marine Salon" - big photo spread with numerous photos of various ships and detailed captions; "Antwerp - Bustling Port of Belgium" - detailed article, photos, and map of the Port of Antwerp; "Unknown Currents" - Present-day navigators do not share the opinion of old-timers that the effect of wind currents in steering a true course is only 'negligible'; "The old sailor warned us" - and through all the author's misadventures aboard her, the words kept ringing: 'That ship be a bad'un' - (article, photos, and map about the Lady Audrey); "Shooting the sun" - No matter what the movies imply, there's more to navigation than simply reading from a sextant - (includes diagram about navigating with a sextant); "Alaska's Seagoing Courthouse"; "the model shipwright"; book reviews; and more.
