Most have, sadly, met their end, either by sinking or scrapping, but a few have survived and these vessels, spread across the country, in a variety of ownerships, form the core of a national collection of international importance. From paddle steamers like the Waverley, the worlds last sea-going paddle steamer, and Tattershall Castle, once a Humber ferry and now a floating pub and restaurant on the Thames, to tugs such as Calshot, which once tendered the mighty ocean liners in Southampton, and launches such as the Raven, a familiar site on Windermere, the variety of preserved ship is fascinating.Profusely illustrated with images of the ships in their heyday as well as today, Historic Ships - The Survivors is a feast for the maritime enthusiast, and continues Amberleys tradition of publishing quality books on maritime subjects.
