Jules Morrnccliinc of New Orleans, "while no mention has been made of the hundreds which huve perfect performance records." Weldhis; illumed Chief KnKiiicer Martin Andersen Brooklyn, N. Y., one of the few men present who had been aboard a Liberty that cracked, blamed (he weakness upon poor welding "Our ship spirt just off Port Said in calm weather," Andersen s;ii<l '.'but we were able to patcli her in' port and return to (he United Slates wltlioul trouble. : "The Liberty must be strong mmdshlp.; been use of her design which places huge weights fore and aft wlicn she is loaded," Andersen continued. "Additional bracing through her center sections would probably eliminate cracking a u 0 . gcther." None of the seamen had ever heard of riveted hulls splitting. • "One of the few Instances I iuivc heard about." said Capt. K. w Trait, "nil were welded hulls, ami if all of those broke in two this wee):, they would already have served their purpose. Without them we would never have been able to carry the cargoes needed to fight this war." /^, Seaworthiness I'raiscil VEveryone agreed that the Liberty ships were seaworthy craft, handled nicely in rough weather were economical in operation and trim sailers. "The, Liberty hulls," said Ca|)l Pratt, "are the finest ever designed and are callable of maintaining a food speed during an entire voyage, using only 170 barrels of fuel oil during a 24-hour period." The only complaint made about the ship was the bad living quarters which arc a result of overcrowding The addition of gun crews to the usual complement of officers and men has made it difficult to find adequate living space on board the already overcrowded ships. With this exception, however the men who sail the Liberties were of the unanimous opinion that loo many unqualified "experts" had given a good ship a bad name.
