That link pertains to Menzies' theory of the Ming Fleet discovering America. I'd invite you to browse Amazon for the number of books on Zheng He & the Ming Fleet; I've read my share & recommend both Edward Dyers & Louise Leavthes' books.marcelo_malara wrote:Hi guys.

Should you have the opportunity, I invite you should visit Nanjing's Baochuan Shipyard where you can learn a lot about Chinese shipbuilding skills that were at their zenith decades before Columbus' birth. This massive shipyard with its six huge slipways (drydocks) built a large percentage of the various ships that sailed in Zheng He's fleet. Living in Hangzhou, China a few kilometers from the site of a 7,500 boat discovery & having the pleasure of visiting Baochuan & several museums, I don't question that the Chinese were capable of building such massive ships during that period before Zhu De's successor closed the door to exploration & withdrew from the world.
