SWATH HULL FORM FOR AN ARS SALVAGE SHIP

Advances the premise that the new ARS-46 design provides virtually no capability increase over the ARS-38 hulls it is to replace, except increased horsepower. The superior motion characteristics of the SWATH are discussed, and significant motion-and geometry-related capability improvements are identified and developed. Concludes by recommending the ARS-46 design be held in abeyance pending comparisons of functions, capabilities and cost effectiveness with SWATH concepts. (Author)
