About Me

I trained as a production engineer and subsequently become responsible for the production engineering of a range of air compressors for an international engineering company. I left in 1981 and spent the next 10 years working as a contract engineer, writing computer programmes for the aerospace industry in many different countries. Since returning home in 1991, I have worked as an independent supplier of engineering data to the aerospace industry.

Much of my spare time has been devoted to researching 17th century ships and shipbuilding practice. The result was The Restoration Warship, Conway Maritime Press, 2009, which involved extensive research in numerous archives, museums, and in consultation with other noted authorities in the field. At the Mountbatten Maritime Award for Best Literary Contribution 2010, I was awarded a Certificate of Merit for the best illustrated book. I have also written numerous articles published in Mariner’s Mirror, as well as chapters for the Mary Rose Your Noblest Shippe and Shipwright 2010. I am also a maritime artist and have exhibited paintings at the Royal Society of Marine Artists. At the moment, I am working on Restoration Warship Volume II, a book about fourth rates and contributing an article about the third rate ship Hampton Court for Shipwright 2013. I am also helping with a project to build a full size replica of Lenox at Deptford.
