A 2 Arrangement of Sections
This booklet is arranged in sections so that the most essential matters are brought to the user's attention first.
Section 1- Operational Information This section contains guidance intended to ensure that the level of stability may be judged with reference to a recomrnended maximum steady angle of heel to prevent downflooding in gusts and squalls.
Section 2 - Technical Data and Loading Conditions This section details the loading conditions upon which the recommended heeling angles are based.
Section 3 - Reference Information This section contains basic information which is necessary for the calculations in Sections 1 and 2. It is not necessary for the skipper to refer to this part but the Beaufort scale and the metric/imperial conversion table may be useful.
¹ These only apply if the vessel is registered.
