JJH Establishes Small Boat Engineering Department— J. Koelbel Named Director

Richard R. Hopkins, president of J JH Inc., recently announced the establishment of the small boat engineering department at the Arlington, Va., office of JJH Inc. This group has the responsibility of providing engineering services to the small craft industry using both the existing resources of JJH Inc., a well-established naval architecture/ marine engineering firm, and the new resources of the department.

Joe Koelbel, a naval architect with 40 years' experience in the field, has been appointed technical director. He has experience with a wide range of boat types, including yachts, fast patrol boats, hydrofoils, auto ferries, and oceanographic vessels.

He has particular expertise in the design and analysis of high performance hulls and has authored several papers on the subject.

Using the latest computer technology, the new department offers a complete range of design services to owners, operators, and builders of yachts, subchapter "T" boats, military craft, and workboats. The services of the small boat department complement those that JJH has offered in the past and extend the scope of the company's interest to vessels of practically all sizes and types.
