Paddle-wheels and screw propellers are covered as well as such specialized propulsion units as variable-pitch propellers, azimuth thrusters, and Voith Schneider units Lavishly illustrated with photographs and the author's own technical line drawings and complemented by the inclusion of data tables and appendixes with addresses of suppliers of materials and equipment this eminently practical and useful handbook is indispensable reading for all working ship modelers.
