The waterline is the line where the hull of a ship meets the surface of the ically, it is also the name of a special marking, also known as an international load line, Plimsoll line and water line (positioned amidships), that indicates the draft of the ship and the legal limit to which a ship may be loaded for specific water types and temperatures in order to safely maintain.

A small section tiled "Super-liners that never were" covers several shipbuilding projects which were never completed.

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.

History of Atlantic Canada. Like much of eastern Canada, the Maritimes originally belonged to the French. Established inthe royal French colony of Acadia encompassed all the modern-day Atlantic provinces, and was one of the Empire’s most strategically useful outposts as the gateway to North America.

In alone, U-boats accounted for the sinking of ships in the North Atlantic. InBritain’s imports totaled 55 million tons; inthe 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 Aprila brand-new, supposedly unsinkable ship, the largest vessel in the world at the time, sank on her maiden voyage after ramming an iceberg.

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).

Ships, boats, and sailors tied the Atlantic world together. Native peoples and colonists depended on boats for fishing, communication, and trade with the wider world.
