Been going over some exam questions. One I don't have reference for is that which asks about repairs to various parts of the vessel such as the rudder, hull plating, bilge keel etc. If someone doesn't have the correct answer directly, can they point me to a source? Thanks very much.
"With regards to welding, patching, cropping and plate replacement. State how you would repair the following and give reasons for your decision.
a) perforated rudder
b) damage bilge keel
c) hole in the bow just below the hawse pipe, with indentation"
There are other similar questions. I can pretty much talk about it, but was looking for technical references esp. for plate and welding specifications, special considerations for plate temperature etc.
