The coupled, nonlinear and parametric system of equations for ship motions are introduced. Simulations of ship motions in regular, beam waves are carried out and a few simulations of ship's capsizing are presented. A new method for obtaining damping and added mass moments for large roll motions with immersing of the deck edge and taking into account the running-off the water from the deck is used. The method of computing of the probability of ship's non- capsizing is presented. A relation of this method to the area of safe basin concept is discussed. The probability of ship's non-capsizing is a recommended measure for ship's stability safety.
