Correcting an angle of loll(MAR Rev. 18/09/01)2
The following procedures should be carefully observed:
lter course to put the ship¶s head into thepredominantwaves
If the ship is in a lolled situation it is essential that the ship stayslolled to the same side. Wave action may cause the ship to rollthrough the vertical to loll on the other side. This is a dangeroussituation since the ship will heel from the vertical of it¶s ownaccord and the momentum it will have in lolling over to theother side may be sufficient to capsize it. In any event, the shipwill initially heel beyond the angle of loll before settling at theangle of loll whereby cargo shift may result which will worsenthe situation further.
heck that port and starboard listing moments arethe same
By verifying tank soundings and checking for cargo shift itshould be possible to account for any listing moments that maycause the ship to be in a listed situation. If it is calculated thatthere are no net listing moments then a case of instability maybe assumed and the ship will be lying at an angle of loll.
heck for slack tanks
In carrying out (2) above it should also be evident if there areexcessive free surface moments causing a loss of GM sufficientenough to make the ship unstable. In this case a loll situationmay be confirmed.
