RE: Hull Steel DH 36 or EH 36

I probably wasn't clear. The request was about DH36 steel, which is a 
Lloyd's designation that requires Lloyd's inspection. That in itself will 
amke purchase tricky. Plenty of ASTM specs available, but best to use the 
ABS rules if you're building ships. They have all their own grades. I 
just noticed in my (old) copy of the ABS Rules that they also use the DH 
36 designation.
