    I enclose the 2 pages extracted from a software for naval architecture calculations User Guide, that deals with the heeling moments that are applied in the special case of tugboats, to study specific stability conditions of this type of ships. I don't know if this is what you are looking for, I hope so. Although it is in Spanish I think that, with the help of google translator, you can understand enough what it says.

    There is an updated MSC 415 (97) update circular related to towing and stability noted HERE ... which may assist you.

    Failing that, just buy the excellent book by Capt Hensen ‘Tug Use in Ports – A Practical Guide’ noted in this IMO circular.

    Or the US Navy Towing manual HERE.

    BlueBell Ahhhhh...

    Hey Baldic,

    Welcome to the forum.

    That's the first time I've heard it referred to as "girting".
    I've always known it as "girding".
    Turns out both are acceptable.

    Learn something new every day.

    Thanks
