The emphasis is put on the total losses caused by the insufficient stability of considered ships. The research is focused on the fishing vessels, which are relatively small ones in marine industry, so they are most affected by the wind and rough sea. The correlation between type of the vessel, its size, the shape of its hull and the capsizing statistic is presented. The regularities noticed in course of statistic analysis allows to formulate the suggestions regarding the influence of some hydrodynamic phenomena on the safety of fishing vessels and the number on their total losses at the sea.}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Safety and Security in Sea Transportation, Fishing Vessels, Insufficient Stability, Statistic Data Analysis, Hydrodynamic Phenomena, Safety of Fishing Vessels, Risk of Capsizing, Stability Criteria} }
