scope:

1.1 This guide covers the determination of a small boat's lightcraft characteristics. The air incline stability test can be considered two separate tasks; a deadweight survey and an air-inclining experiment. The stability test is recommended, but not required, for all small craft upon their construction completion or after major conversions, or both, where stability information is required. It is typically conducted indoors and an enclosed facility to protect the vessels from unprotected environmental conditions.

1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.3 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
