“The author considers the advantages of steel construction for all types of small ships and boats.  He discusses the repair, rebuilding and design features which are unique to steel.  The characteristics of modern steels and alloys and their uses are considered, together with the necessity of rationalising building by using a minimum number of different sizes of bar and plates.  Also explained are ways of avoiding time consuming and highly skilled working processes.”
