A fully loaded, ocean going container ship is just stable about its longitudinal axis (roll). The ship has a total weight of 155,000 tons, length = 1,600 feet and a beam = 150 feet (assume that it is the shape of a rectangular box). Calculate the height above the waterline of its center of Gravity (G).

(Answer is h = 82.8 ft)
