This paper analyzes the effect of depth on the conditions of stopping of the Magdala, a tanker of 213,000 tons deadweight. The types of stopping were varied to the fullest in order to best represent the conditions which the ship could encounter in its commercial operation. The analysis of the results indicates that the fundamental parameter is the initial speed. It is rather difficult to separate the effect of reduced depth from the effects of other parameters; if this effect exists, it can be qualified as favorable, but it always remains small.
