A Stability book is required for a wide range of vessels. All fishing vessels over 15m require Stability Information Booklets and Workboats which take part in lifting operations or carry over 1000kg of cargo also require Stability Books as well as numerous other vessels.
Lightship checks are also required on a regular basis to ensure your vessel is still within the acceptable limits for difference in Displacement and LCG.
If a vessel fails its Lightship Check then an Inclining Test will need to be carried out to establish if the vessel still meets statutory criteria and if necessary an amendment to the stability book can be carried out.
McCollam Marine can carry out all aspects of the Stability Tests and produce Stability Books if necessary for your vessel.
