Gallifrey (Verne, The Nautilus, and Winans Ironclads)

If you have an interest in Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under Sea you need to check out Michael Crisafulli’s website – Gallifrey.  Michael has a wealth of information on his site regarding various approaches to the designs of the Nautilus.  As a sidelight to his thoughts and 3d images of various Nautilus designs, Michael also has a detailed section on the Winans Cigar Ships, and for those interested in devices to populate war games, a unique class of massive steam driven cigar-shaped ironclads that the Winanses tried to convince the Russian Navy to build in the 1860s. Michael has done a great job of digging up images of the Winans Ships as well as many references – perhaps he and I will combine forces and information at some point to write a book on the ships! http://home.att.net/~karen.crisafulli/
