Introduction to intact stability, including initial transverse stability, the metacenter, GM, GZ, GZ curves, influences of initial GM, longitudinal stability, trim.
On 26 January 2016, a 164-meter-long Roll-on/Roll-off vessel lost stability in heavy weather and was drifting fast towards the French coast in the Bay of Biscay. A team of dedicated salvage experts of SMIT Salvage was on the scene within 24 hours and was able to prevent an environmental disaster from taking place. Watch the impressive video of this spectacular salvage operation.

A perfect or near perfect balancing of forces, called trim, is essential for any floating vessel to operate. The trimming of the boat is accomplished by varying or adjusting the amount of water in the variable water tanks. The trim system is employed mainly to maintain the balance by regulating the quantity of water in the variable tanks. A software that can simulate the trim system by taking into account factors like buoyancy, gravity etc will be of immense use for navigation and training. A sample from TA is showcased in this video.
Explains what are cross curves of stability. GZ & KN cross curves. Why KN cross curves are introduced.
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - Footage from a vessel stability and safety at sea seminar in Newport News, Va., Thursday, Dec. 10, 2009. The Coast Guard and other safety experts addressed local fishing industry vessel owners and operators Thursday in Newport News at a stability and safety at sea seminar. Presenters explained the science behind vessel stability and discussed the importance of safety before giving some demonstrations. They deployed a life raft, simulated vessel stability concepts with a floating model boat, gave immersion suit training and discussed the best use and care of electronic position indicating radio beacons (distress satellite beacons.) Capt. John Little, deputy commander of Sector Hampton Roads, gave the opening remarks before the presentations were made by personnel fr...
