The International Load Line Regulations require vessels to sail in a safe condition, taking into account transverse and longitudinal stability. Ships officers should be able to determine the initial sailing condition of a vessel to ensure it complies as well as calculate the effects on transverse and longitudinal stability from moving weights on, off and around the vessel.
In this course you will learn the basic concepts of buoyancy and floatation and how stability is affected by moving weights around the ship. You will also explore the Load Line Regulations and the required stability graph that is drawn to prove the vessel complies with them.
