The study looks into the problem of superstructure design in smaller cargo ships, particularly the 500 grt bracket. A very controversial situation comes about when improving living conditions for the crew resulting in loss of deadweight and earning capacity. The paper suggests some alternative ways of dealing with this situation without changing the tonnage or manning regulations, but emphasizes that unsound conditions exist in the 500 grt bracket. Order from NSFI as No. 17115.
