AbstractIn a recent study to evaluate the occupational risks induced by ship motions on the fishing fleet of Newfoundland under the umbrella of the community initiative called SafetyNet, five fishing vessels of various sizes were evaluated during sea trials carried out approximately 10 nautical miles off St. John?s ? Newfoundland. The selection of the sizes was intended to be representative of the whole fleet ? 35?, 45?, two 65? and 75?. The two 65? vessels had motion reducing devices: one paravanes and the other anti-roll tanks - both commonly used in this fleet. This paper describes the vessels and the trials? conditions. The measured motions responses for roll, pitch and yaw, accelerations for surge, sway and heave are given in the paper. Comparisons between vessels are also presented for motion induced interruptions for selected locations on board.
