Matching dissimilar hulls of the T2 tankers and C4 ships proved an intricate exercise, the problems mainly concerning the beam and depth - 71ft 6in and 43ft 6in respectively for the C4 type and 68ft and 39ft 3in for the T2 ships. The following description of the work involved is generally applicable to all three conversions.
The T2 was cut at about frame 47, the C4 at frame , with the cut staggered over a length of 90ft. In essence, therefore, a ft afterbody was joined to a ft forebody, this producing a ship capable of carrying x 35ft containers below deck and above deck, the latter being stowed three high between box-section buttress posts. Work on the scarph joint included construction of a new bulkhead and sloping transition between the maindeck of the C4 and the raised poop of the T2.
Extensive bracketing unified the vertical C4 framing to the longitudinal framing of the ex-tanker. Riveted straps on the C4 hull fitted at an earlier conversion were extended 30ft aft of the new bulkhead, and 70ft doubling plates were added from the main deck via the new slope to the poopdeck. The existing bridge structure was retained, although refitted to modern standards, and the wheelhouse level raised by the addition of part of the T2 bridge.
During hull conversion the main machinery received complete overhaul and modification, so increasing its rating from 6, to 8, SHP and speed to 15 knots. On each ship the rudder was strengthened and doubling plates added to the stern to allow for greater power and the increased turning movement of the hull.
