Abstract
In this study the stability characteristics of a number of recently-built Australian fishing vessels of 16 to 26 metres in length are investigated. The effects of trimming freely with heel both in still water and on a longitudinal wave with crest amidships are considered. The results are compared with the standard (constant trim) stability curve. In an effort to determine the effect of size on these considerations, the stability characteristics of a 70 metre cargo vessel and a 230 metre tanker are also investigated.
