This research was directed toward the analysis of the economic opportunity of surface effect ships in the carrying of commercial cargo in U.S. commerce. The principal index of SES economic opportunity was the number of SES's that could be economically employed. The principal year selected was 1995 and considered three different route lengths -- 2,000 plus, 500- 2,000, under 500 miles. Four case routes were selected for detailed study -- New York to Europe, San Francisco to Japan, New York to Puerto Rico, and inter-Hawaiian Islands routes.
