                The squat effect is the hydrodynamic phenomenon by which a vessel moving quickly through shallow water creates an area of lowered pressure that causes the ship to be closer to the seabed than would otherwise be expected. This phenomenon is caused when water that should normally flow under the hull encounters resistance due to the close proximity of the hull to the seabed. This causes the water to move faster, creating a low-pressure area with lowered water level surface

                            The procedure which we use to test launch lifeboats is:

                              remove gripes/lashing wires

                              no one boards the boat

                              launch boat to water, doing brake tests on the way down

                              crew go down embarkation ladder or accommodation ladder and board boat

                              boat is taken away and engine/steering etc checked

                              boat returned and hooked on

                              boat lifted about 2 metres above water

                              self-release wire tested from inside the boat and boat landed back in water

                              if necessary, boat lifted again about one metre above water and quick release mechanism tested

                              all crew disembark and climb up ladder

                              boat retrieved with no one inside

                              boat secured
