In this paper, rigid ship hull and elastic ship hull were respectively designed. For the former, the hull is divided into two segments, while for the latter, into five segments. And a series of experiments of ship model navigating in regular wave were carried out. Time histories of motion and vertical bending moment of the two models were recorded and analyzed. By comparing results of the two models, the impact of elasticity of hull grider on motion and vertical bending moment can be analyzed.
