    I want to make simulation on the turret mooring of FPSO but I have problem when I do the sea-keeping. I try with some of the cable but it never works, the FPSO keep bouncing off from the sea when i use catenary mooring line. Another problem when I try use the polynomial the FPSO start capsize slowly. Sorry I do not know so much about how to make use on the mooring line. I try everything. Maybe I don't understand the meaning of this parameters and thus I put wrong values. Can someone please explain me what have I to do to analyze the cable's effects on the system. Is there something missing? Can anyone help me.

    Regarding your mooring line FPSO

    Can you attach all files and inputs that you are specifying for your FPSO?
    I have done many mooring analysis (Spread and Turret) and I believe I can help you with my database.
