AbstractThis report describes a set of seakeeping experiments carried out during the summer and into the fall of 2009 as part of the Fishing Vessel Safety Project on a 1:10.67 scale model of the 65 ft (19.81 m) long fishing vessel CCGA Roberts Sisters II, designated IOT761, in the Institute for Ocean Technology (IOT) Offshore Engineering Basin (OEB). 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 November 15, 2004. The objective of the experiments was to acquire quality model scale seakeeping data to correlate with full-scale data, as well as to validate numerical prediction software under development at Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN). This document describes the model fabrication, instrumentation, data analysis procedure, provides the results of the sea trial / physical model / numerical model correlation exercise and recommendations to improve the overall correlation in future.
