SHIP HANDLING IN RESTRICTED WATERS — SHIP SQUAT AND SHALLOW WATER EFFECTS
|D O W N L O A D|
Narrow passages and fairways in rivers and canals with a navigable depth or width comparatively small in relation to the draught or breadth of transiting ships are called restricted waters. The maneuverability of ships navigating through such restricted will be effected by peculiar hydrodynamic effects that are different from those when ships navigate in broad and deep waters.
Please note that we also have three other videos that belong to the same series of handling ships in restricted waters and address the anchoring, in-harbor ship handling and bank effects & interactions between two ships. The explanations are simple and clear making the video a good visual supplement to the theoretical training. Obviously, going through the content of all four videos will provide the best training effect for the mariners and is most recommended.
