UNDERWAY OBSERVATIONS OF THE SS AMERICAN MERCHANT, VOYAGE NUMBER 111
This study, the second in a series of three, was conducted for the purpose of determining unnecessarily costly and time consuming operational problems among ocean-going freight vessels. It is expected that the compilation of information garnered from these studies will eventually lead to substantial economies. A record of the observations made of the shipboard organization and activities aboard the vessel is presented. A comprehensive representation and analysis of the costs of ship operations are developed from the observation data. The Appendix contains supporting data from the voyage operations and from U.S. Lines' records.
