AbstractThis report describes seakeeping experiments carried out on the 35 ft. (10.67 m) long inshore fishing vessel 'Atlantic Swell' off St. John's, NL October 4, 2003. 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. 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. This document describes the CCGA Atlantic Swell, the trials instrumentation package, data acquisition system, test program, data analysis procedure and presents the results. Future reports will provide the results of correlation of the full scale data with physical model test results, the output from numerical models and the development of criteria to reduce MIIs.
