Ship Stability OOW covers the syllabus requirements forming the underpinning ship stability knowledge required for certification to STCW 95 Officer of the Watch (OOW) level.

Many students worry that they do not have the mathematical ability for ship stability calculations. This publication addresses this problem by covering the subject in the simplest way possible at a level appropriate for a learner studying either independently or at college. Worked examples and self-assessment questions are provided throughout with tutorial questions at the end of each section.
