Abstract:

This report is a Users Manual which describes the usage of the Man Overboard and the Abandon Ship Simulations discussed in detail in Report No. CG-D-7.78. The simulations provide a means by which rescue boat performance criteria may be determined they may also be used to evaluate known rescue boat characteristics. Both simulations have a standard use which allow the user to select a set of standard values to serve as a common base for variations in the rescue boat characteristics. The manual describes the usage of the standard simulation as well as the more flexible override mode. This latter mode is intended for the user who may want to investigate special conditions. The simulations provide a method for the user to override the standard values and substitute values of his own design. Separate sections in this report describe the override capability.
