Trade Publication
The author discusses the difference between stability and damaged stability. He cites the loss of stability of the Francis Drake passenger cargo ship in the 1960s and the intact stability of newer ships like the Maritimo 47 which has the specially-fitted side buoyancy feature to give intact stability in case of engine room flooding. He relates damaged stability to the Australian government's decision to impose super profits tax on the mining industry.
