Question:

We are having difficulty using GHS to evaluate the Water on Deck Criteria for
fishing vessels as specified in 46 CFR 28.560.  We have tried the run files
and some hints in the manual with no luck.  Can you provide us with a runfile
or suggestions.



Answer


I think the following run file demonstrates how 46 CFR 28.560 can be applied
using GHS.
