    Hello all,

    I am working on stability of a 100 year old passenger vessel getting converted into a floating hotel in malyasia. The vessel can take 70 passengers at a time and will be working in protected waters of malaysia only.

    I wanted to know what rules(class or national authority) should i consider in assessing the stability of vessel.

    Thanks in advance.

    I find that most odd. All Flag authorities will tell you or at least provide you guidance!

    Well, try EU directive 98/12 Class D
