    Based on the syllabus for Ship Stability for the STCW 95 Chief Mate/Master Reg II/2 (Unlimited) widely used as a study text.

  2. James Lowe

    This is an up to date text. Explanations are good, but the stability data supplied does not contain any Conditions that can be used to work out problems typical to the operation of a vessel. For example we may be told that MV ” Almar ” is in condition 3 departure and 300 tonnes of cargo are loaded just abaft of number 4 hatch. What is the GM departure and what are the new drafts fore and aft ? The stability data provide to a vessel is required to have this type of information and also have trim tables and correction to the displacement for trim.
