First published in 1992, the Sea Dart book covers the engineering, development and testing of the Navy's only supersonic seaplane fighter ever built.

The XF2Y-1 was the seaborne fighter component of the Navy's late 1940 "mobile Base" concept along with Convair's R3Y Tradewind seaborne heavy transport and Martin's P6M SeaMaster seabourne supersonic bomber. The concept was eventually abandoned with the twin Jet Sea Dart fighter and the P6M SeaMaster jet bomber being cancelled. The Sea Dart design was unique, as it used either one or two extendable skiis for its take offs and landings. Four of the five Sea Darts are still on display or in storage today.
