This index is divided into four sections: chapter titles, offshore wrecks, inshore wrecks, and a complete listing of the names and their maritime connection. The entries in the chapter titles section include the year built and any other ships mentioned in the chapter. If the field is blank, the information was not found. For the offshore and inshore sections, this book lists brief shipwreck information (about a paragraph or two long) for each of 19 ships.
