AbstractThis report describes a set of irregular wave seakeeping experiments carried out as part of the Fishing Vessel Safety Project on a 1:4.697 scale model of the 35 ft. (10.67 m) long inshore fishing vessel CCGA Atlantic Swell, designated IOT651, in the Institute for Ocean Technology (IOT) Offshore Engineering Basin (OEB) January ? February 2005. The data from these tests was used to correlate with the full scale data acquired during sea trials carried out off St. John?s, NL October 4, 2003. The objective of the experiments was to acquire quality model scale seakeeping data to validate numerical prediction software under development at Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN) and correlate with the full scale data.This document describes the model fabrication, instrumentation, data analysis procedure, provides the results of the ship /physical model/ numerical model correlation exercise and recommendations to improve the overall correlation in future.
