Construction of this site was interrupted by the death of the author's wife, Sue Goetz Ross, on 27 March 2002.
The reference tables and the French Navy section were added in mid-2004 and intensive work on the auxiliary vessels register resumed in late 2005.
The article by Norman L. McKellar was added in 2007 with the kind permission of Mrs. Hazel McKellar.
The "Spring Styles" drawings were added on 26 April 2015.
