Several inventions that are related to the building-slip stage of the ship construction process are introduced. The first involves portable machine tools developed for the purpose of minimizing tool misalignment after boring. Also described are tool and shaft misalignment compensators that simplify and reduce the cost of shaft line installation. A portable milling machine with a special machine tool is recommended for machining ship seatings, especially large seats located on structures made of lightweight alloys. A procedure for monitoring the planeness of seats through the use of a straightedge is explained. Lastly, special caps have been developed for the temporary sealing of flangeless pipes made from any material during hydraulic testing at pressures up to 60 MPa.
