Excerpt from Shipbuilding and Shipping Record, Vol. 11: A Journal of Shipbuilding, Marine Engineering, Docks, Harbours and Shipping; June 13, 1918
N Exchange Telegraph message from Washington on Monday announced that, in the first five months of 1918, 629 ships of gross tons have been built in the United States. Um fortunately, shipbuilding figures have a habit in the States of crop ping up in such unexpected places and in so many different ways that references to output sometimes mean boats completed or ready for service, not infrequently bare hulls put into the water, and occasionally both. It is therefore not an easy matter to deter mine from a few words in a cable message exactly what is meant. Nor is the situation rendered clearer by confusion between gross and deadweight and displacement tons. The figures issued by the Admiralty and published in our issue last week showed that during the same period there were completed in the United Kingdom tons gross, at which rate we are building tons a year.
