BUILDING ALUMINUM FERRYBOATS

With no published standards for building aluminum vessels, this San Diego shipbuilder worked out his own fit-up and welding procedure. These ferryboats are 165 feet and rated to carry 750 passengers, the world's largest of their type, all aluminum passenger vessels. The article outlines the general building procedures and includes a listing of the subject matter of the manufacturing process specification book. The fabrication and welding details are proprietary information.
