This book provides the Master of a disabled tanker with information about the most probable drift behaviour of his vessel. The research underpinning the book was initiated by a group of OCIMF member companies, the American Institute of Merchant Shipping (AIMS) and the International Salvage Union (ISU). The British National Maritime Institute (NMI) was commissioned to carry out intensive model testing with free floating and tethered models that was validated with full scale drift data obtained from a number of vessels, predominantly VLCC's but also some smaller tankers.
