DEFINITIONS

A Navy boat is defined as an uncommissioned waterborne unit of the Fleet, not designated as a service craft, and capable of limited independent operation. It may be assigned to and carried on a ship as a ship’s boat or assigned to a shore station or a fleet operating unit.

The term “hoisting weight” as used herein is defined as the weight of the boat completely fitted out and ready for service with machinery and electrical installation in operating condition. All outfit, navigational, lifesaving equipment and crew are on board. The fuel tanks are full, except in special bases as noted.

The weight of personnel is estimated to be 165 pounds per man and 225 pounds per man for a combat equipped marine.

The accompanying illustrations are to a scale of 1/8″ = 1′-0″.

Inflatable boats are to a scale of 1/4″ = 1′-0″.
