Further tests of SKI-CAT were made in smooth and rough water. Smooth water results confirmed the performance results of previous trials. An upper limit control boundary was established which restricts the flap angle to more negative angles as speed or RPM is increased. Rough water tests were a repeat also with performance and seakeeping results similar to those found earlier. Following seas account for small reductions in the accelerations and motions of SKI-CAT over against the head seas results. Author
