A theoretical analysis is constructed for the hydrodynamic forces acting on a system of inter connected vertical, slender, axisymmetric bodies which are floating in presence of incident waves. The theory is based on linearized water wav potential theory and the use of slender body techniques. The resulting expressions for the hydroc forces are used to predict the motions of such a system. The effects of viscous damping are also estimated.
