Abstract : The document contains ship response data, with associated discussions, collected during two North Atlantic winter operating seasons on the sea-land container vessel S.S. Boston. Seven voyages are covered with sea states ranging to force 12. Results of an extensive static loading experiment are presented and compared with analytical calculations based on applied loads. Vertical bending data are compared with data collected on a similar unconverted C4, the S.S. Wolverine State. (Author)
