Abstract:

The results of the first, or formulation task, of a three task study of stability criteria for towing and fishing vessels are presented in this report. Included are a literature study, a fleet census and characterization, detailed stability calculations for 51 vessels, and the selection of models and test programs for task 2. Four models are selected and a proposed test program for towing vessel tripping and towing and fishing vessel seakeeping are described. Volume two contains 51 vessel booklets, each presenting the characteristics and static and dynamic stability curves for a particular vessel.
