Found in second hand book shop in Ballater
« on: December 09, 2013, 09:59:48 AM »

I was in Ballater at the weekend and found in the book shop an interesting book called Merchant Ship Stability Third edition 1962  by H J Pursey .  It has all the maths Formulae as the title says to set the ship up .It was of interest to me and I wondered if any of the contents would  equate down to scale modelling or not . I know it is over complicating things we can just float  and set up but I thought it might be a interesting exercise.

A ship's a ship whatever size it is. The stability is same for big or little.
