Annual Report of the Chief of the bureau of Steam Engineering
1898  
The annual report from the Bureau of Steam Engineering to the Secretary of the Navy, John D. Long, is a fascinating study of the performance and problems of the vessels involved in the Spanish-American War.  Naval units had difficulty staying on station for a multitude of reasons. Chief among them was the long distances traveled to replenish coal. Other reasons were the scarcity of water for the thirsty boilers, equipment breakdowns, lack of adequate repair facilities and personnel training. This report adjectively covers the pros and cons of the state of the U.S. Navy. It's recommendations for the resolution to the problems of a modern global navy were taken to heart by the U.S. Congress and the result was the foundation of the future U.S. steam Navy.

World War II American Destroyer Minelayers
DM-1 through DM-22 a study in Blueprints. 
With the advent of the Great War, 273 destroyers were contracted for to combat the German U-boat menace. This core of destroyers would be referred to as "flush deckers" or "four pipers" and would form the back bone of the American destroyer force in the post war years and into World War II.
    The flush deckers were of six types. The first six vessels were a diverse lot. They had flat sterns, with Caldwell (DD-69), Craven (DD-70) and Manley (DD-74) having four stacks and two screws. Gwin (DD-71) had three stacks and two screws. Conner (DD-72) and Stockton (DD-73) having three stacks and three screws. The Wicks variant (DD-75 through 185), were of two basic plans. The Bethlehem yards used their set of plans while the other ship yards used a Bath design, with both variants having a pointed stern. These destroyers would be referred to as "short-legged". The Clemson variant (DD-186 through 347), were designed with an additional 100 tons of fuel and were referred to as "long-legged" destroyers.
    The lessons of the war proved the need for a fast minelayer to quickly enter an enemy anchorage, lay her mines and quickly escape to sea. In 1919 the office of the CNO ordered fourteen Wicks and Clemson hulled destroyers converted to fast minelayers. The conversion to a minelayer consisted of removing the torpedo tubes and replacing them with mine racks, with the tracks or rails supporting forty mines each. Fourteen destroyer minelayers were commissioned in 1920, two in 1930, two in 1931 and finally four more in 1937.  Of these twenty two minelayers, eight served in World War II, with Gamble (DM-15) and Montgomery (DM-17) being sunk by the Japanese. Montgomery was awarded the Navy Unit Commendation for gallantry on September 12-15 as part of Task Unit 32.9.3 off Palau.  Ships of class: Anthony (DM-12)(DD-172), Breeze (DM-18)(DD-122), Burns (DM-11)(DD-171), Gamble (DM-15)(DD-123), Hart (DM-8)(DD-110), Ingraham (DM-9)(DD-111), Israel (DM-3)(DD-98), Lasnsdale (DM-6)(DD-101), Luce (DM-4)(DD-99), Ludlow (DM-10)(DD-112), Maham (DM-7)(DD-102), Maury (DM-5)(DD-100), Montgomery (DM-17)(DD-121), Murray (DM-2)(DD-97), Preble (DM-20)(DD-345), Pruitt (DM-22)(DD-347), Ramsey (DM-16)(DD-124), Rizal (DM-14)(DD-174) Sicard (DM-21)(DD-346), Sproston (DM-13)(DD-173), Stribling (DM-1)(DD-96) and Tracy (DM-19)(DD-214).

World War II American High Speed Minesweepers
DMS-1 through DMS-18 a study in Blueprints. 
With the German invasion of Poland in 1939, it became apparent the United States Navy needed a fast minesweeper. Speed was necessary to stealthy enter an enemy harbor, sweep the protective mines and escape to sea. In 1939 the office of the CNO ordered seventeen Wicks and Clemson hulled destroyers converted to fast minesweepers. The CNO ordered the four ships of DesDiv 52 converted to fast minesweepers, as DMS 1-4, four recommissioned ships became DMS 5-8, with an additional nine and finally in 1941 one additional vessel was added. All torpedo tubes were removed and a squared off false stern added to support minesweeping davits. This sufficed only for use against moored mines and later two 60-kw turbo-generators replaced the three 25-kw units and the capability to sweep magnetic and acoustic mines was added. Number 4 boiler was removed, but this does not appear to have been connected to minesweeping features.  Of the eighteen minesweepers which fought in World War II, Palmer (DMS-5), Hovey (DMS-11) and Long (DMS-12) were sunk by Japanese forces. Seven minesweepers were to receive the Navy Unit Commendations. Hamilton (DMS-18) was awarded the commendation on September 12-15, 1944 as part of Task Unit 32.9.3 at Palau. Hopkins (DMS-13) received her award for action on August 7, 1942-June 4, 1944, Solomons and a second commendation on January 6-7, 1945 in Lingayen. Hovey received two commendations on August 7, 1942-May 17, 1944, Solomons and September 12-15, 1944 as part of  TU 32.9.3 at Palau. Long received her award on September 12-15, 1944 as part of  TU 32.9.3 at Palau. Southard (DMS-10) was to receive the honor for action from August 7, 1942-May 17, 1944, south west Pacific. Trever (DMS-16) received her award for action from August 7, 1942 through June 22, 1944 in the south west Pacific. Finally, Zane (DMS-14) was cited for action from August 7, 1942 through August 1, 1943, south west Pacific.

World War II American Destroyer Seaplane Tenders
Clemson hull conversions AVD-1 through AVD-14 a study in Blueprints. 
In 1938 the United States Navy needed a fast seaplane tender. Speed was necessary to follow seaplane squadrons around the globe. In 1938 the office of the CNO authorized two Clemson hulled destroyers, Childs (DD-241) and Williamson (DD-244) converted to seaplane tenders. The success of these initial two vessels spawned CNO authorizing five more ships to be converted in 1939 and seven more in 1940. The high speed seaplane tenders were intended to support squadrons (twelve) aircraft of patrol bombers; they supplemented the first of the new destroyer size Barnegat class. Conversion entailed replacement of the two forward boilers by tankerage for 30,000 gallons of avgas, the torpedo tubes, the two waist guns and the 3-inch/23 AA gun were also removed and the bridge superstructure was extended to provide living and office space for the squadron. A crane was stepped amidships and aircraft servicing boats were carried in davits. Unlike a Barnegat, an AVD could not hoist a seaplane aboard for maintenance. Initially the ship designation was AVP-14 through 20. The designation was changed to AVD-1 through 14. Of the fourteen vessels only Ballard (AVD-10) was lost to Japanese forces. Six went on to be further converted to high speed transports, George E. Badger (AVD-3), Clemson (AVD-4), Goldsborough (AVD-5), Belknap (AVD-8), Osmond Ingram (AVD-9) and Greene (AVD-13).
    Six ships would receive Presidential Unit Citations. Belknap's (AVD-8) PUC coming on April 20 to June 20, 1943 as part of Task Group 21.12 (USS Bogue hunter/killer team). Clemson received two PUC's, the first on July 12 through August 23, 1943 as part of TG 21.13 (USS Bogue hunter/killer team) and her second, November 14 through December 29, 1943 as part of TG 21.13. George E. Badger received three Presidential Unit Citations. The first coming from April 20 through June 20, 1943, as part of TG 21.12, the second July 12 through August 23, 1943 as part of TG 21.13 and her third from November 14 through December 29, 1943 as part of TG 21.13. Greene received the PUC serving with TG 21.12 from April 20 through June 20, 1943. McFarland (AVD-14) PUC came from serving in the Southwest Pacific from June 20 through October 16, 1942. Finally, Osmond Ingram receiving three Presidential Unit Citations, the first coming with TG 21.13 and the second and third citation serving with TG 21.13.

World War II American High Speed Transports (APD)
Colhoun class, (Wickes hulls) A Study in Blueprints. 
In 1938 United States Navy needed a high speed transport for amphibious landings. The Manley was chosen by the CNO to be so converted. Her conversion proved such a success that six additional destroyers were so converted and the designation APD became an official type of vessel. Her conversion consisted of the removing of her two forward boilers, stacks and torpedo tubes. Her 4" guns were replaced with 3" rapid fire, her forward machinery spaces were modified to carry 200 troops, provisions for stowing four machine guns on carts, one 75mm pack howitzer, ten boat guns and ammunition for a total of 33 tons of personnel and their equipment. Of the seventeen Colhoun class (Wickes hulls) APD's, four were lost in World War II. Dickerson (APD-21) was struck by a Japanese suicide aircraft at Okinawa on April 2, 1945 and scuttled two days later. Gregory (APD-3) was sunk by Japanese destroyers Yudachi, Hatsuyuki and Murakumo off Guadalcanal on September 5, 1942.

USS Hornet (CV-8) A Study in Blueprints. 
That wonderful Yorktown class of carriers, (Yorktown (CV-5), Enterprise (CV-6) and Hornet, basically saved the U.S. in the early days of World War II. The Hornet stung the Japanese with Doolittle's B-25 bomber raid on Japan. The Doolittle raid was the brainchild of Captain Donald B. 'Wu' Duncan, Admiral King's air operations officer. Hornet followed this raid by stopping the Japanese at Midway Island. Hornet's final battle at Santa Cruz Island stopped the Japanese re-supply at Guadalcanal. It is my opinion that the battle of Santa Cruz Island was the turning point of the war.
