Abstract : Results of a model test program, the second task of a three task study of stability criteria for towing and fishing vessels, are presented in this report. The tests covered both tripping and seakeeping of four models. The models were selected from a detailed study of fifty-one towing and fishing vessels carried out in Task One. A discussion of the testing methods and a limited analysis of the data are included.
