Thanks to my wife Rene' for supporting this endeavor of mine. Her understanding of my obsession allows me to continue to devote time and money to keep this site going.

Without the help of my dear friend John Asmussen this site would not be possible. John has provided uncounted hours of his time teaching me how to build a web site, which is something I knew nothing about. He has lost many a nights sleep on my account. Since he lives on the other side of the world, and is seven hours ahead of me, he stays up until the wee hours of the morning guiding me through all the problems I encounter. Thanks John!

Philip J. Heydon, who lives in England, has become quite involved in the operation of MaritimeQuest and has played a pivotal roll in obtaining very unique photos and providing vital research for the site. Without his help much material would simply be out of reach to me and therefore to the site. Thanks so much Phil for all you do to make MaritimeQuest a better site for all.

David Page and Steve Johnson, both of Plymouth, England, have provided many of the photos which make
up the Royal Navy section of this website. I could not create a good Royal Navy section without their help.

Gary Priolo of has generously allowed me to use his graphics of American Campaign Medals.
His graphics add a very nice touch to the US Navy ships history.
