    Hello all,

    Firstly, would you know the history of Nordforsk (1987) - Seakeeping criteria? I believe it is used only for large ships, would you know the smallest size of vessel that it is reasonable to apply it to?

    And second, is there a similar 'general operability limiting criteria' for small (power) boats below 24 m in length?

    and, What parameters make a good seaworthy hull?
