inclined due to an off-center weight


inclined due to the wind
down by the head
down by the stern

Question 2. What is NOT a motion of the vessel?:

Pitch
Roll
Trim
Yaw

Question 3. Buoyancy is a measure of the ship's ____________________.:

ability to float
deadweight
freeboard
midships strength

Question 4. Which action will affect the trim of a vessel?:

Moving high weights lower


Adding weight at the tipping center
Moving a weight forward
All of the above

Question 5. Reserve buoyancy is _______________.:

also called GM
the void portion of the ship below the waterline which is enclosed and watertight
affected by the number of transverse watertight bulkheads
the watertight portion of a vessel above the waterline

Question 6. The distance between the waterline of a vessel and the main deck is called _________________.:

draft
freeboard

buoyancy
camber

Question 7. What is the principal danger from the liquid in a half full tank onboard a vessel?:

Corrosion from the shifting liquid


Rupturing of bulkheads from the shifting liquid
Loss of stability from free surface effect
Holing of the tank bottom from the weight of the shifting liquid

Question 8. When cargo is shifted from the lower hold to the main deck the ___________.:

center of gravity will move upwards


GM will increase
center of buoyancy will move downward
All of the above

Question 9. The center of volume of the immersed portion of the hull is called the ________________________.:

center of buoyancy
center of flotation
center of gravity
tipping center

load line draft

Question 2. Reserve buoyancy is _______________.:

also called GM

the void portion of the ship below the waterline which is enclosed and watertight
affected by the number of transverse watertight bulkheads
the watertight portion of a vessel above the waterline

Question 3. Your vessel rolls slowly and sluggishly. This indicates that the vessel _____.:

stability at large angles of inclination

Question 7. Addition of weight to a vessel will ALWAYS _____.:

reduce reserve buoyancy


increase righting moments
increase GM
All of the above

Question 8. If a vessel takes a sudden, severe list or trim from an unknown cause, you should FIRST _________________.:

determine the cause before taking countermeasures
