Paper Title: High-Speed Craft - Uniform Operating Limitations

 

Authors

R Gehling, Rob Gehling & Associates Pty Ltd, Australian

Summary

The author has been deeply involved with matters relating to the International Code of Safety for High-Speed Craft (HSC Code) since its draft stages over 15 years ago. 

During development of the 2006 amendments to the 2000 HSC Code, a need was identified for establishment of uniform procedures for determining the operating limitations covered by the craft’s Permit to Operate.  In particular, the need was foreseen to ensure that the operating limitations take account of the craft’s stability and seakeeping characteristics in addition to the hull strength related sea-state limitations that have generally been imposed by the classification society.  IMO subsequently embarked on developing guidance to facilitate a uniform approach in this area. 

The paper, which was initially presented to the Pacific 2010 International Maritime Conference in Sydney, provides background and documentation for the resulting guidelines on uniform operating limitations that have now been promulgated by IMO.
