SEAKEEPING CHARACTERISTICS OF A UNITED STATES COAST GUARD BUOY TENDER

Seakeeping experiments conducted with a model of a United States Coast Guard Buoy tender are described, and the results thereof are presented. It is shown that the in-transit performance of the buoy tender will be limited by deck wetness. It is further shown that the motions of the buoy tender in a free-drifting condition are minimized in head waves; and that linear superposition may be used to predict the vertical plane, oscillatory responses of the free-drifting vessel in mild, head seas.
