Example 3-Worksheet
DD 963 @ 7500 LT displacement
What is the maximum speed each Navy tug can achieve?
Solution: Compute hawser tension at 10, 8, 6, 4 knots and plot in Figure G-1
Tow Speed
Hawser Resistance
Total Pull Required
10 kts
174,354 lbs
1,100 lbs.
175,454 lbs.
8 kts
116,221 lbs
1,900 lbs
118,121 lbs
6 kts

40,193 lbs.
The attached Table G-1 work-up shows hawser tensions for the 8- and 10-knot cases.
Plotting a curve on Figure 6-1 provides the following likely maximum tow speeds for each of the tug types
listed, with total hawser average tension.
