Scale Interpretation Problems

There are a variety of problems which really just involve calculating mean drafts or displacement of a vessel and then reading a value off a scale. Each type of problem you can possibly see on your exam has a short lesson below along with a few practice problems so you can ensure you understand how the scales works.

Being able to calculate mean draft is a pre-requisite, so visit the stability fundamentals section of the course if you need to refresh on that skill.

Here are the problem types:
