Many ship accidents are experienced by small boats. With a large number of small fishing boats in Indonesia, the risk of potential ship accidents is high. Therefore, an operability analysis must be conducted for various loading conditions to address any safety issues due to severe vessel motion. The net cargo of a fishing boat will change during its operation at sea and then will affect the vessel’s seakeeping characteristics. This study aims to determine the effect of changes in load and their effect on a traditional fishing boat’s operability in Indonesia, considering the ship’s intact stability. In addition, this study also highlights the response of the ship roll motion to prevent stability failure. The stability curve is used to relate ship stability analysis to seakeeping analysis. Percentage operability and Operability Robustness Index are used to assess the root mean square (RMS) roll response and the ship's expected maximum roll motion.
