By no means is the complete history of aluminum vessels and yacht development, material, specifications, design, construction and durability, as well as other facets, covered in full. It is proposed to discuss some of the more important development aspects, scantling requirements, construction problems, corrosion control and material problems which we have experienced in design of aluminum yachts and commercial vessels up to something over a hundred feet in length and speeds of over 50 knots, both power and sail.
