One of the class of eight SL-7 high speed containerships has been extensively instrumented with stress, strain and motion sensors. These have been modified for the Third Season of data acquisition to emphasize measurement of hatch corner and bow sideshell strains. Much of the previous instrumentation inventory, including a wave height radar and Tucker wave meter, has also been employed in the Third Season. This report contains a summary of the recorded data, examples of the analog records, a catalog of the data formats and a listing of the available data intervals. Some analysis of the data is also reported including midship bending stresses encompassing all three data seasons. Data collection for the third season began with the west-bound North Atlantic voyage 59 on January 17, 1975 and terminated with westbound voyage 61 on March 17, 1975. Author
