AMP145PRG PLANS AND SUPERVISES FIRST-EVER INSTALLATION OF HAMILTON HT-1000 WATERJET DRIVES IN COMPOSITE HULL

We recently completed the planning, engineering, and installation supervision of a pair of Hamilton HT-1000 water jets in a 145-foot fast patrol hull. This project was noteworthy because it was the first-ever installation of these large units (13-tons each) in a composite hull.

Specially cast aluminum intake ducts were used in place of the standard fabricated weld-in ducts. This required us to develop special proprietary techniques for lifting and locating the units, and for boring and interior spot surfacing for hundreds of bolts and large backing washers. We also developed special proprietary techniques for epoxy in situ molding of landing pads for the large transom plates. Proper planning and pre-engineering of purpose-specific jigs and fixtures resulted in an installation precisely on time and on budget.
