TECHNICAL EVALUATION OF THE NORWEGIAN CREW CONCEPT BOAT (CG-502001) AND COMPARISON TO THE 41-FT UTILITY BOAT (UTB); FINAL REPT

This report provides the results of the technical evaluation (TECHEVAL) of the Coast Guard boat CG-502001. This boat is being used to evaluate the Norwegian Crew Concept (NORCREW) at U.S. Coast Guard Station Taylors Island, Maryland. The U.S. Coast Guard Research and Development Center conducted testing on 13-19 November 1992. This testing was executed to independently establish a performance baseline for the NORCREW boat CG-502001 and determine if there were any significant technical performance characteristics of the boat that could have a negative impact on the outcome of the NORCREW concept evaluation. The report compares the design and performance of the NORCREW CG-502001 with the 41-FT UTB. It is the opinion of the RD Center TECHEVAL team that there are no technical performance characteristics of the CG-502001 that would have a negative impact on the outcome of the NORCREW concept evaluation.
