Abstract
This report describes the simulation of launch and recovery of a small boat from a ship using a boom crane. The simulation was developed using the existing Ship Mechanical Systems Application Programmer Interface (SMS API). The SMS API was extended to include modelling of collisions between cables and solid objects, which can include a ship or a small boat. The influence of tag lines being handled by deck personnel was modelled, with a winch model being used to approximate the cable tension being applied by a person on deck. Simulation components were verified by comparison with a number of test cases. A complete launch and recovery scenario was simulated and visualized.
