BEYOND BASIC STABILITY & TRIM

This course is recommended for: Those who manage a vessel’s stability and trim such as Chief Officers, Masters, Port Captains, Marine Superintendents, Marine Sureyors and those aspiring to be one. Course Dates: June 1 – 3, 2011 Duration: 3 Day Tuition: $895 Location: PMI
Stability and Trim for the Ship’s Officer

PERSPECTIVE:
This Workshop is for those who want and need more practical working knowledge with regard to managing a vessel’s stability and trim of cargo vessels. This Workshop will be offered by the author of Stability and Trim for the Ship’s Officer, William E. George. With William George’s methods all you really need is the vessel’s hydrostatic table, capacity plan, a simple calculator and a few sheets of paper. Participants will be able to eliminate the “trial and error” methods now used with loading computers by employing these direct “Old School Methods” covered in the workshop. All participants who attend the first offering of this workshop will receive an autographed copy of Stability and Trim for the Ship’s Officer, 4th Edition.
