**Due date for proposals remains: 20 Feb 2008, 11:00 AM Local Alaska Time** The following are contractor questions and Coast Guard provided responses: Question 1) If we manufacture the shafts using ABS grade 2 forgings (ASTM-A-688) can we substitute this same material for the propeller nut and keys? Would 1045 material be acceptable? Answer 1) If the shaft is manufactured of ABS grade 2 forgings (ASTM-A-688) then the same material shall be used for the propeller nut and keys. ASTM 1045 is not acceptable. Question 2) The key and keyway dimensions are not given on the drawing. Answer 2) Review of 167WAT-4301-10 shows detail 9-A and Section 8-C provides questioned dimensions. This should be sufficient to prepare an accurate bid. Upon award Coast Guard will work in cooperation with the Contractor to establish any additional details (not clear or deficient on drawing) required to complete fabrication. Question 3) The propeller shaft in the original drawing (167WAT-4301-1) is a 1 piece shaft with a forged flange. Was this detail changed due to availability of material? Answer 3) Good observation. The flange was removed in 1999, due to pitting/damage. The adjoining stern tube shaft (that will remain in place) has been modified to use the existing straight coupling. Coast Guard has intentionally decided to continue with a flangeless propeller shaft (as depicted in (167WAT-4301-10). All other requirements remain unchanged. This is a combined synopsis/solicitation HSCG85-08-R-625454 for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in FAR Subpart 12.6 as supplemented with additional information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; proposals are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued.
