ABSTRACT
The article discusses the process of welding a bitt to the deck of a steel ship. It examines the concept of how welding will be done, which include casting the preparation for a partial joint penetration groove weld bevel into the bitt and defining the weld size required. It highlights the basic arrangement of the bitt and the towing cable. The importance of bearing in increasing the capacity of the connection and decreasing the stress on the weld is emphasized.
