FEASIBILITY STUDY OF GLASS REINFORCED PLASTIC CARGO SHIP

The report describes a study undertaken to evaluate the technical and economic feasibility of constructing and operating a large glass reinforced plastic (GRP) cargo vessel or, alternatively, using GRP for major structural components on a steel cargo ship. Areas for further research are presented, and further investigations of smaller GRP vessels (150-250 feet long) are proposed since these appear most promising at this time. (Author)
