    From Ship to Shore and a Whole Lot More

    Illustrated memoir of the transgender maritime professional Michelle Clarke about her life at sea and ashore.

    Lifting and Lifting Appliances Aboard Ship

    Lifting appliances on board ship, particularly ship’s cranes, are critical to a vessel earning freight. A ship is only earning money, ie, freight, when carrying cargo at sea. If the deck cranes are out of action in port the vessel will have downtime which in turn reduces the vessel’s earning capacity. For this reason, and the safety of the crew, ship’s cranes should be well maintained, usually whilst at sea, to reduce the possibility of port downtime.

    Reefer Ships

    Following the scanning of some 45,000 slides into jpeg images covering the period 1966 to 2006 it was noted that reefer ships featured prominently. Nearly 500 different vessels photographed mostly around the Thames, Medway, Dover, and some European ports. From this around 170 ships are depicted in this book showing the sleek lines and colour schemes of the variety of ships seen & photographed, many of which are long gone.

    Thames and Medway Shipping Past and Present

    Following the success of the previous books, and with so much more material available, the author received many requests to compile another book, but not just about shipping on the River Thames but to include shipping on the River Medway. To give as much variety as possible he has tried to not only depict ships of yesteryear but also many of the different types of vessels now using the various terminals and jetties.
