The author points out that the predicted maneuverability performance of a vessel needs to be validated and checked by full-scale sea trials. The information obtained from such trials, if competently processed and presented, can contribute to the safe handling and navigation of the ship. In practice, however, the effective availability of such maneuvering data on many ships at sea leaves much to be desired. This paper considers the mariner's need for maneuverability information, and discusses how this need can be met in a realistic situation.
