Abstract
The seakeeping performance of the CFAV Quest during the Labrador Sea Extreme Waves Experiment demonstrates the inadequacy of unidirectional sea-state descriptions and, even more important, demonstrates deficiencies in the unidirectional sea-state model's accepted successor, the unimodal, two-parameter spectrum with 90 degress cos2 spreading. A more complete, often multimodal, sea-state description can reveal strong, unexpected variations in ship response with heading, and can result in substantially improved ship operability assessments.
