General Description

The module consists of a floating methacrylate body with a vertical mast placed on it. An adjustable mobile mass has been added to alter the position of the center of gravity.

The base of the floating body is V shaped, simulating one of the different frame cross-sections of a boat.

A weight that can be horizontally and vertically displaced allows for modification of the floating base heel.

A plumb bob, attached to the upper part of the mast, is used to measure the angle of heel of the floating base with the aid of a graduated scale.
