Every vessel and owner must endure the complexity of a stability test at least once. Most people will tell you the principle of a stability test is very simple. But the detail of execution required can be very challenging. Engineers talk in cryptic terms, rambling off random symbols and phrases. To bring some understanding to all of this, Jensen Maritime published a guide on stability tests, specifically meant for vessel operators.
