TYPE VII / Re: U Boot in Focus #14 out now
« Last post by falo on 07 Aug , 2017, 14:19 »
Hi Dougie,

thanks for your information (very useful as always).


Just a question: I'am missing the four life containers on the foredeck of U-481, do you think they were dismantled because U-481 was "only" operating in the baltic sea?


Thanks in advance and regards

Hello Filippo,


I (The Managing Editor) had four (4) contributors to Skizzenbuch; Mr. Tore (The Main Expert), Maciek (Now Deceased Expert), Simon (Art Work), and Mark (Help with German Text Translation). Anytime I make a change to Skizzenbuch, I notify my contributors so they may review the content in my Dropbox folder and suggest any needed corrections or changes. This is the process that we have followed for over three (3) years while I have written/managed Skizzenbuch.


Skizzenbuch is not a released book as of yet... Currently, I sent a book proposal to the Naval Institute Press, but I am not naive about the prospects. So I have two (2) alternative plans as well; publish the book on my own or distribute the book as a encrypted PDF free over the internet. The most expensive option for me is the free PDF file over the internet because of the cost of the encryption software. I will not allow Skizzenbuch to be changed without my control of the content!


So, this is where I stand on the distribution of Skizzenbuch to date! I believe that "Skizzenbuck: U-Boat Type VII C Project" is about finished and very few changes will occur after today. I am in a situation where I am waiting on a Publisher's decision, or if that fails; I must come up with the cash needed for one of my other two (2) options.


Regards,

Hi Don,
excuse me for my insistence, but I don't understand if you uploaded the file Skizzenbuck on your Dropbox folder just for the insiders, or if it's vailable for all interested on U-Boats....
Consider that I have not any experience of Dropbox....
Thanks in advance for answer.
Cheers.

Hello Mr. Tore and All,


I have uploaded my latest version of Skizzenbuch into my Dropbox folder... I only changed page II and made a few spelling corrections.

Hello everyone,

Thank you, Don, for informing us of this dreadful news. Maciek was always very helpful and kind and I have been particularly appreciative of his help in my U 47 book. Without doubt he was a highly respected expert in his field. As a talented researcher, he was kind enough to share his comprehensive knowledge with us. He will be very sadly missed by us all.

If anyone is not aware, Maciek is the author of the Torpedo Vorhaltrechner Project, which can be viewed here -

He also wrote the following page -

Best regards to all,

Hello Mr. Tore and All,


It is my sad duty to inform you all that I have received an email this morning from Maciek Florek's wife, Olga Florek, that he had recently passed away. I will truly miss my very dear friend. However, a friendship is forever, so I look forward to seeing Maciek later!


Kind regards,

Very sorry to learn the bad news, Maciek was a man of great VIIC knowledges, yet very modest in promoting his theories. It was a pleasure getting to know him and exchanging ideas as well as theories on the VIICs. Maciek, on my last post to you:  R.I.P.

Hi all, I realized now the content of the message about Maciek: I didn't know him, but I'm so sad for the lost of an U-Boat enthusiast.....

Hi Don, if the file is available in your Dropbox folder, how can I have access to it ? Or it is still in preparation and not available for download ?

Im really shocked. He was such a great Uboat enthusiast with awesome projects. He was one of those I hoped to work with in the future.
