Overview

According to Captain Hooyer, forces acting on the ship have an effective lever arm with respect to a hypothetical pivot point. The forces creating or affecting this pivot point include the ship's motion, underwater resistance, and momentum. The timeliness of this study coincides with the rapidly developing technology affecting shiphandling, especially of the very large and ultra large crude carriers. It will be particularly helpful to pilots and ships' officers as well as those whose jobs require a thorough understanding of ship behavior.
