Description

Image shows workers building steel hull of the Courageous inside a building. "Courageous was lofted at Minneford's Yacht Yard in City Island, New York. Subassemblies were prefrabricated and then welded together -- which is why the tanks are on the deck. Designed by Olin Stephens, Courageous is made of 5086 H-34 aluminum alloy. A considerable amount of time and money was saved by building in aluminum rather than the traditional wood."
