 Dutch term or phrase: doorzetting van het schip Fragment: "Wordt de snelheid van het schip met bovenstaande manoeuvres onnodig vergroot, rekening houdende met de manoeuvreersnelheden, de steeds kleiner wordende naderingsafstand tot de containterkade, de afstand die nodig is om het volgeladen schip (...) te kunnen stoppen en tevens gelet op de lange ** doorzetting van het schip ** door het water?" I have no clue as to what the "doorzetting" of a ship can be. The term "doorzetting van het schip" produces 0 hits on Google. Is there any sailing expert out there who can give me a hint?

 inertia (in motion) Explanation:"doorzetting" refers to the amount of time the ship will keep moving forward whilst being propelled backwards; as a result of its Momentum =Mass*Velocity The ship carries a full load, hence its inertia is high. Therefore its velocity should be reduced to a very low speed and two tugs are to be attached; one to the bow and one to the stern. Ik weet niet zo gauw of er een specifieke Engelse term is voor "doorzetting" maar als je het inertia noemt zal iedere stuurman of oods in opleiding begrijpen wat wordt bedoeld.

Explanation:
"doorzetting" refers to the amount of time the ship will keep moving forward whilst being propelled backwards; as a result of its Momentum =Mass*Velocity

The ship carries a full load, hence its inertia is high. Therefore its velocity should be reduced to a very low speed and two tugs are to be attached; one to the bow and one to the stern.
