Description
Full Text

Capt. Heber Squire, of Grand Haven, has recently patented a process of fastening the hulls of wooden vessels and other structures, which is exciting much interest, and is being indorsed by all shipbuilders in that section. It consists of a wooden plug or tree nail being driven in a short distance apart between each plank throughout the entire hull. It distributes equal strength throughout the entire structure, locking together each and every part in such a manner as to make the entire hull one solid mass, precluding all posibility of working, hogging or straining. This was first used in the contruction of the prop. TEMPEST, built by Squires & White the past summer.
