the work*
When the ship is approaching completion at a time to be
mutually agreed upon,  the guilders are to incline her in the presence
and to the satisfaction of the Owners*       From the data so obtained,
curves of stability are to be drawn for the following conditions
and any other conditions which the Owners may  require to establish
1*    The vessel light,with water in boilers and condensers to
working level, but with no fuel,  cargo,  stores or other
water on board. ^
2. The vessel as in 1,  but with the  addition of the double bottoms
full of water.
3. The vessel as in 1, with the addition of the bunkers being
filled, but with no cargo,  stores or other water on board.
4. Vessel as in 1, but loaded with 400 tons of homogeneous
cargo and Main Deck freight space, bunkers full,  fresh and feed
water tanks aft filled,   and with passengers, crew, baggage,
stores and provisions on board, or their equal.

The deadweight,  including Engineers'  heavy spare gear to be
about 650 long tons on a mean draft of 15'-6",  and to be arranged so
that every  space allotted for freight will be utilized without
endangering stability.
Note;-    The  trial draft will be,   say 15 ft. mean,  at which
draft 17 knots must be obtained.      Deadweight carried on trial,
■i_—■!■_■!   urn* i»-^ww»w>»w»i*i«*M|_ww«wwi**>-*-i
including Engineers' heavy spare gear, to be approxim tely 490 tons
at start of trial*
The vessel must be designed with a centre of buoyanoy so
arranged that when the ship is light as in Condition 1, or loaded
as in condition 4 above, she will not trim by the head. To
ensure this before the lines of the vessel are approved, calculations must be made showing the trim of the vessel in these
The  speed of the vessel at sea in ordinary weather is +o be
a good 17-1 knots per hour,  and this speed must be maintained with
all auxiliary machinery which will be in use when running on
ordinary service, namely, heating cooking, electric lighting,
refrigerating machinery, pumps and ventilating apparatus working
at normal load*
Note:-    This speed must be maintained for 8 hours continuous
servioe in reasonably sheltered waters and not merely for short
coasting runs.
TRIALS.     ,     '
A _Krr*»T-B of progressive trials to be made on the measured
mile, the  said trials shall  consist of a series of progressive
trials to be made on the measured mile, with 490 tons deadweight
on board corresponding to a mean draft of approximately 15 ft.  to
determine  the  revolutions at various speeds.       At full power the
mean speed over one  double  run or measured mile,  i.e. with and
against tide  shall not be less than a good 17^ knots.       The  ship
is to be put astern when running full speed to determine her
capabilities of coming to rest.    The efficiency of  the steering
gear and rudder to be tested by working from hard-a-port to
fcard-a-starboard when the vessel is going ahead at full speed as
on trial and full speed astern as on trial.      The vessel will
also proceed on a long distance trial in reasonably sheltered
waters for at least 8 hours, through which trial the mean speed
shall be a good 17 knots.
On all trials, the whole of the auxiliary machinery will be in
use as when running on ordinary service carrying passengers and
cargo, namely, heating, cooking, electric lighting, refrigerating
machinery, pumps and ventilating apparatus to be working.  All
machinery must work cool and smooth without the application of
wafer service to the satisfaction of the Owners' representative.
Full details of the trials, both progressive and long distanoe,
to be supplied to the Owners.
Builders to provide all expenses whatsoever in connection
with the trials until the vessel is finally handed over to the Owners,
as agreed.
Before the trials,  the vessel will be dry docked and bottom
painted with Molzapfels International,  viz:- two coats of Bo.  1 and
one  coat of No.  2*      All expenses in connection with the drydocking
to be paid by the .Builders.
Before the trials, the Builders are to fill all bunkers and also
to supply and put on board all water, stores, feed water and any fresh
water ballast required. The  Owners will take over any fuel,   stores
