AbstractThis report describes manoeuvring experiments carried out on the 65 ft. (19.81 m) long fishing vessel CCGA Miss Jacqueline IV off St. John’s, NL October 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. Although the priority was to collect seakeeping data, a manoeuvring test program was also prepared in the event that calm seas prevailed. Thus an opportunity to acquire manoeuvring data in relatively calm seas was exploited prior to a seakeeping trial carried out on October 17 and 18. This document describes the CCGA Miss Jacqueline IV, the trials instrumentation package, data acquisition system, test program, data analysis procedure and presents the manoeuvring results.
