General ferries, floating equipment used in construction work such as dredges, piledrivers, and flats; fishing vessels; and recreational craft are not included. The series, which also includes Series 3, Transportation Lines on the Great Lakes System and Number 5. Transportation Lines on the Atlantic, Gulf, and Pacific Coasts is prepared under authority contained in the River and Harbor Act approved 22 September 1922. The names of the vessel operators are listed alphabetically in Table 1. Each line carries Engineer District number and the name and business address of the operator. Table 2 lista the operators in alphabetical sequence and describes each vessel operated by indicating its net register tonnage, register and overall lengths, register and overall breadths, draft (both loaded and light), horsepower, carrying capacity in short tons or units of cargo and number of passengers, heights of fixed superstructures, cargo handling equipment, vessel operating base, and year built or rebuilt. Table 3 lists types of service, principal commodities carried, the points or localities, and waterways between which or upon which the services are conducted. Information was obtained by means of a questionnaire by the District and Division Engineer offices of the Corps of Engineers, U.S. Army, with each Engineer office accounting for the operators whose main operating headquarters were located within its jurisdiction on 31 December 1980. The final report, following editing and collation of inout data furnished by operators, was compiled and copy preparation accomplished in the Waterborne Commerce Statistics Center.en_US
