Tests of TMB Model 4943 were conducted in Langley Tank No. 1 to determine the motions and resistance of a round bilge 41-ft Personnel Boat in waves. Model pitch, heave, and accelerations at bow and CG were measured on a 16-scale model in head seas in regular waves. The hull responses to regular waves were obtained experimentally, and the method of linear superposition was applied to characterize the crafts behavior in a State 3 sea. Author
