We have launched a consultation about a draft marine guidance note which has been produced as a result of the need for owners and skippers of small fishing vessels (most appropriately those under 15 metres length overall) to make an assessment of the stability of their vessels.
Although the tests do not provide accurate or absolute data, they will help owners and skippers assess whether or not their vessel is tender or stiff in a particular condition (ie laden or unladen).
