For many years Hulls best-kwn ship owners, the Rix family have operated a fascinating variety of steam and motor coasters, plus inland and coastal tankers. All of these are covered in depth and illustrated in Rix Shipping , which also tells the inside story of the familys involvement in shipping. This extends beyond coastal and short-sea shipping, to bunkering operations, ownership of a shipyard on the Humber, and most recently to wind farm servicing craft. Written in partnership with family members, this is a fascinating portrait of the ups and downs of coastal shipping from the 1880s to the present day. A 96-page hardback in the familiar Ships in Focus style, this is highly detailed and profusely illustrated in colour black-and-white.
