To perform numerical compu- tations, specific vessel sizes, pe- riods of operation and trade routes are selected. Sizes selected are the typical tanker, the larg- est Suez Canal tanker, and the largest tanker at the beginning of a particular period. Also, three time periods are selected: 1950- 70, 1959-76, and 1969-76. Instead of forecasting future costs and revenues, the model is truncated in 1976 using resale or scrap values. Because of the high vol- ume of long-distance crude move- ment, the Gulf (Ras Tanura) to
Northern Europe (Rotterdam) trade route is selected. drum diesel driven towing winch that spools 1800 feet of 1 -3A" wire rope, and a hy- draulic Bitt-type anchor wind- lass holding 1" anchor chain.
