The report describes accomplishments for the period May 1, 1972 - June, 1973, under a research program entitled, Stability and Ship Motion in a Seaway. The principal objective of this program is the study of extreme ship motion in waves, particularly in regard to survivability against capsizing. The research includes a program of experiments conducted with free-running radio controlled ship models in the open waters of San Francisco Bay, and a theoretical part involving studies of large amplitude motion and the extrapolation of current research results to real ship experience.
