    Hello, someone could clarify this section of the HSC Code?


    2.1.3 A residual righting lever shall be obtained within the range of positive stability, taking into account the
    greatest of the following heeling moments:
    .1 the crowding of all passengers towards one side;
    .2 the launching of all fully loaded davitlaunched survival craft on one side; and
    .3 due to wind pressure,

    I calculated the moments and I have the stability curve.
