Did you actually READ what I posted and check the reference???
In fact - between the 1st of January and the 31st of December 1943 - Britain's shipyards launched naval vessels totalling 316,112 tons...
...and that's JUST complete
NAVAL ships sent out of yards in 1943...
Shall I prove it with a SCREEN PRINT? Can you add?
...really too wide for this forum's settings, but you can plainly see that the half yearly totals for COMPLETE ships alone are 124,257 tons and 191,855tons....making 316,112 tons
. Nearly TWICE your figure...
And THAT is just
What was more surprising than the delays in 1942 is that in 1943 the rate of completion rose, delays shortened and output improved in spite of the withdrawal of preference. Work in hand rose sharply as the year 1942 drew to its close, and continued to rise in 1943. The increase was most marked in types of ships for which hulls could be prefabricated—L.C.T.s and corvettes. But the general trend of output also reached its highest point during 1943. Tonnage in hand rose from 1,525,000 tons in January to a peak of 1,953,000 tons in December. The tonnage of naval vessels completed rose to 316,000 tons, and the disparity between expectations and fulfilment was now narrower than ever before.
So, now that you have authoritative, sourced figures for British production in 1943 -
2. Claims and Proof
The sixth rule of the forum is: "When quoting from a book or site, please provide info on the source (and a link if it is a website)."
If a poster raises a question about the events, other posters may answer the question with evidence. If a poster stops asking questions and begins to express a point of view, he then becomes an advocate for that viewpoint. When a person becomes an advocate, he has the burden of providing evidence for his point of view. If he has no evidence, or doesn't provide it when asked, it is reasonable for the reader to conclude that his opinion or viewpoint is uninformed and may fairly be discounted or rejected.
Also, undocumented claims undercut the research purposes of this section of the forum. Consequently, it is required that proof be posted along with a claim. The main reason is that proof, evidence, facts, etc. improve the quality of discussions and information.
...isn't it about time you told us where your incorrect
figures were sourced? You've avoided doing so so far.
