FEASIBILITY OF SAILING SHIPS FOR THE AMERICAN MERCHANT MARINE
The study was prompted by recent world developments in energy supply and environmental concern. It is an economic comparison of the performances of several sizes of sailing ships vs those of comparable powered ships, all on several long trade routes from North American ports. The ships, both sail and powered, are of 15,000, 30,000, and 45,000 tons cargo deadweight. The routes studied are East Coast - Liberia, East Coast - North Europe, West Coast - Australia, and West Coast - East Asia. Particular cargoes are not specified, but in general are intended to be bulk cargoes in trades that require the ship sizes listed.
