Conventional shipbuilding on small dockyards
07/09/2010 § Leave a comment
After the first picture in a previous post showing “what shipbuilding commonly is” here are a couple of others. Once again, these boats are usually made of 3rd to 4th use steel plates patched together in a boat-like shape…
One of the following picture is showing the starting point of such assembly. Starting from the bottom beams. Steel plates will be added along time, shaped by hand (and big hammers), scrapped with steel brush… etc
After a few layers of paint, the building process will be hardly noticeable, therefore the ship safety and structural integrity not an issue… Occidental standards are really far from this side of the world.
