Description: REFINED 53' CUSTOM ALUMINUM PASSAGEMAKER
Maximizing security in planning a custom boat focuses on the risk of collision at sea. Colliding with a 250,000-lbs barely awash container at 7/8 knots will instantly sink a fiberglass boat and crumple the bow of an aluminum boat--which it is engineered to do but without intrusion of water. Dodge Morgan asked Ted Hood to specify that American Promise's stem have 5 inches of solid glass to withstand an 8-knot collision with a container which never occurred. After her circumnavigation, she was donated to the Naval Academy in 1986. In 1991, with three officers and nine midshipmen on board, she struck a coal barge in the Chesapeake and sank; the barge was not damaged. The aluminum racer Yankee Girl fell victim to errant navigation and washed ashore on a rocky Block Island beach in 1976, coming to rest in a foot and a half of water but drawing nine feet. She lay on her side for several months, dragged back and forth across the rocks. When salvaged, her topsides were dramatically deflected and distorted but her hull was never breached and she did not leak. It is the ductility of aluminum which enables it to absorb energy by distorting without breaking. In pointing out that aluminum, for the same weight, is stronger than steel, Dave Gerr, in The Elements of Boat Strength, also states that aluminum, being more ductile than steel is therefore also better able to absorb energy.
