The objectives of roll stabilization are defined as they affect people and cargo. Five stabilizing systems are considered--uncontrolled passive tanks, controlled passive tanks, activated tanks, activated fins, and ballast control systems. The benefits and expense or other penalty for each system is examined. It is concluded that if the stabilizing requirement for a vessel includes a severe harbor loading problem, and a need for good rolling performance at sea, then a hybrid system of two or perhaps even three of the subject systems will be required.
