It has recently come to our attention that there is a bug in some stability criteria when using water on deck. This affects only criteria which group together multiple individual criteria. The problem has existed since water on deck analysis was introduced several years ago. The affected criteria are those derived from the parent criteria shown below. The caused the uncorrected (not water on deck) GZ curve to be used for evaluating these criteria, generally overestimating the stability of the vessel.
