Abstract : The S03-project has been a research project working to improve ship handling procedures in a seaway. Both the field of instrumental aids and improved education have been given attention. The project has been sponsored by Norwegian interests, but was also supported by the U.S. Coast Guard. This report which is a continuation of the S03-project effort, summaries the content of a course for mariners in ship handling, sponsored by the U.S Coast Guard at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, Kings Point on 24-25 March 1981. The report gives in more detail the background for the course, an abstract of the course content, and a summary of the lecture notes. In addition, the course schedule and list of participants are given together with a rating of the course as given by the participants. Two other reports are appended in this volume as well, e.g. a S03-project report on: Ship Handling in Rough Weather, and a SNAME spring meeting publication (1980); Status Report on the Application of Stress and Motion Monitoring in Merchant Vessels.
