New SHIPWRECK Book  by Capt. Dan Berg

 
WRECK VALLEY III
By Capt. Dan Berg

The most comprehensive, accurate, illustrated collection of information, photographs, sketches and stories ever written about the shipwrecks that lie off Long Island, New
York and New Jersey.

Softcover, 8x10", 188 pages
printed in full color. $39.95 +P&H

The original Wreck Valley book was published back in 1986. At the time it was not only the first but the only book for area divers that detailed local shipwreck history and dive conditions. Capt. Dan's 2nd edition was printed in 1990 and became the most popular of his shipwreck publications. Wreck Valley III  is a completely new update, expanded and enhanced edition of the Wreck Valley books. Wreck Valley's 3rd edition covers the history, legend, present condition, aquatic life, and pertinent dive information on over 140 shipwrecks. This text includes over 550 illustrations, comprised of over 400 color photographs, 111 black and white historical photographs, 35 sketches, 20 side scan sonar images and nine 3D underwater shipwreck illustrations. Capt. Dan completely changed the books format and design to accommodate all of the research and images collected in 30 years of local shipwreck diving. The collection of historical photographs alone would take years of archive research to locate and would cost a small fortune if purchased separately. Many of these rare images have never before been published. Wreck Valley III includes a GPS list of accurate artificial reef and shipwreck locations. Divers, fisherman, marine historians, armchair sailors or anyone with a general interest in history, diving or the sea will surely find this book informative, fascinating, and the perfect addition to their library.

For years shipwrecks have intrigued and fascinated everyone from treasure hunters and divers to fisherman and maritime historians. Now you can learn how to create your own unique Shipwreck-in-a-bottle maritime masterpiece. This 124 page text is heavily illustrated with hundreds of color images. Find out how easy it really is. This book details all the tricks of the trade and secrets involved in building these unique miniature vessels.

According to Terry Butler Pres. of the SIBAA -
( Ships-in-Bottles Association of America.)

 I must have 50+ books on the subject of Ships-in-Bottles. This became the most recent book in my collection and I put it as one of my favorites! It is all in FULL COLOR with many illustrated instructions for every aspect of ship bottling. I was surprised at how much info was packed into the soft cover 188 pg book, and how much I learned from this one that I hadn't from my other SIV books. No matter what your skill level, i believe anyone could learn something new from this book. I have both of Dan Berg's books. The other is geared more for beginners. This one would appeal to ALL ship bottlers or beginners. This is easily MY favorite of the two books.
