THE SELECTION AND INSTALLATION OF MACHINERY FOR A HIGH SPEED UTILITY-CREWBOAT
This paper describes the selection and installation of propulsion machinery of a high speed utility-crewboat. Included are three independent shaftlines (outboard propulsion diesel powered and center shaftline gas turbine powered), water jet propulsion, speed reducing gearbox, preselected gas turbine (Allison 501-KF0), and ancillary subsystems. Work boats or military boats were chosen as the type and size vessel that could benefit from the light weight and high power of the gas turbine.
