The paper presents a strip theory and its correlation with experiment and analysis on the relative motions of two ships. The ships are in close proximity and in parallel position in oblique waves. The two-dimensional procedure takes account of the hydrodynamic interaction between two cylindrical bodies. It was found that the strip method is a useful technique to predict the hydrodynamically coupled motions of two ships.
