torpedochief Posted March 19, 2019 Share #1 Posted March 19, 2019 I don't mean to make mountains out of molehills or be dramatic, however, doing research sometimes leads even us not so bright people into questions. I Need some help. Any welders, marine engineers, or shipwrights I need your opinion. Suppose we have a ship 15 years old. Designed for one load line, however, it was decided to increase the load line with no internal work. During inspection, it was noticed the hull plates and the keel welds were separating, and the keel was hogged. Repairs were to use steel plates and wedges welded between the keel and the plates. Would this repair be sufficient for continued loading beyond the designed load line? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
