AbstractThis report describes seakeeping experiments carried out on the 65 ft. (19.81 m) long fishing vessel CCGA Roberts Sisters II off St. John?s, NL November 15, 2004 as part of the Fishing Vessel Safety Project (Proj. 2017). The objective of the project is to acquire quality full-scale motions data on fishing vessels to validate physical model methodology as well as numerical simulation models under development. Eventually, tools will be developed and validated to evaluate the number of Motion Induced Interrupts (MIIs), induced by sudden ship motions, and their impact on crew accidents to develop criteria to reduce MIIs. Collaborators involved in the fishing vessel sea trials include the Institute for Ocean Technology (IOT), Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN), Oceanic Consulting Corp. (OCC), Canadian Coast Guard (CCG), the Offshore Safety and Survival Centre (OSSC) of the Marine Institute and SafetyNet ? a Community Research Alliance on Health and Safety in Marine and Coastal Work. Primary financial support for the project is provided from federal funding sources including the Search & Rescue (SAR), New Initiatives Fund (NIF) and the Canadian Institutes of Health and Research (CIHR) in addition to significant in-kind contributions from the many participants. This document describes the CCGA Roberts Sisters II, the trials instrumentation package, data acquisition system, test program, data analysis procedure and presents the results.
