This question is designed to get help from someone (with some important important questions), so that I can get an understanding on why I cannot quite get the correct answer for this question Longtitudinal Centre of Gravity for Ship Cargo.
Also establishing if I have actually answered Longtitudinal Centre of Gravity for Ship Cargo question correctly and maybe the answer from the textbook is not quite correct.
If the Longtitudinal Centre of Gravity of a ship (without added load) is behind (aft) of it's Longtitudinal Centre of Flotation, does this affect a ships change in aft draft ?
For change in draft aft calculations, does added weight always have to be added at Longtitudinal Centre of Flotation, parallel sinkage calculated there and then change in trim calculation for movement of weight to it's actual position done from there ?
Can an Added weight be positioned at the ships original Longtitudinal Centre of Gravity, Parallel sinkage calculated at LCG and then the change in trim calculation for movement of weight to it's actual position done from there ?
I am thinking of a situation when it is calculated that a cargo load is to be positioned aft of the ship Longtitudinal Centre of Gravity, when the ship Longtitudinal Centre of Gravity is behind Longtitudinal Centre of Flotation.
