Dave's Ship Links

Hello and welcome. This is my page of links to the outside world for both Japanese Ship links and other ship links that I've found to be very cool and useful. The main reason for this page is that I keep losing my bookmarks and need a more permanent place to keep them. But these are places I do visit regularly and have been impressed with. Also, they are places that are original, in other words, they don't copy stuff directly out of someone else's book and represent it as their own. Oh and one last thing, they are all free! No pay sites will ever be listed here! Enjoy! If you have a link that should be here, drop me a note at dpluth@j-aircraft.com
