This paper describes the 18 double-hull oil tank barges built by a Portland, OR, barge builder since 1993. Of the 18 barges, there are 7 completely different designs. This builder had previously built many single-hull tank barges. This paper records the experiences of this builder during development of the new designs and the constructing of the barges to conform to the new OPA 90 Regulations.
