STANDARDS ANALYSIS POWERING/PERFORMANCE EVALUATION USING TEST COURSE METHODS. VOLUME II. APPENDICES A-G

This report consists of two volumes. Volume 2 contains Appendices A through G which consist of various relevant material and technical analysis conducted during the performance of the subject research. Research boats were instrumented (in some cases) to record, on analog tape, roll angle, pitch angle, heading (yaw), lateral acceleration and, to some extent, a prototype roll instability detector was used. Photographs of many of the test boats are included. The entire program was aimed at obtaining data/criteria for a 'performance' method of determining the maximum horsepower (speed) at which a small boat will not exhibit 'instability' when subjected to a severe maneuver, and to establish a reliable method to evaluate the results of tests.
