Manoeuvrability of ships in restricted waters has long been an important problem mainly for inland vessels and barges which often navigated through shallow water area and narrow canals. However, in recent years, the same problem has become important for huge ocean-going ships such as super tankers, as their sizes grew in relation to the sizes of harbours and straits. This situation has been recognized by the ITTC Manoeuvrability Committee which recommended that the ITTC should make a study of this problem as one of its subjects. In this Appendix, the authors have attempted to make a brief survey in Sections 2-6 of investigations already undertaken concerning this problem, and subsequently expressed their views of the further research work to be promoted.
