In Volume II, Part Three involves propeller-based propulsion. Aside from elaborating on basic principles, it also discusses geometric features, hydrodynamic performance, the interaction between the hull and propellers, and cavitation phenomena. Additionally, it covers propeller blade strength, propeller map design and the match of ship, and engines and propellers. It introduces theoretical propeller method and propeller-induced exciting force, along with special propulsion plants aside from ordinary propellers.

Part Four, Ship Maneuvering, begins with basic equations for ship maneuver. It then analyzes related concepts of ship maneuver, maneuverability criteria and test methods. It focuses on hydrodynamic performance and rudder design.

Part Five of Ship Seakeeping discusses heave, roll, and pitch during storms. The chapter describes statistical analysis of irregular waves and the basic theory of spectral analysis, based on the characteristics of waves. It discusses the corresponding relationship between waves and ship motion, highlighting how ships roll in beam waves and pitch in heading seas. It also provides practical results, design data, and theoretical calculation methods. Furthermore, it discusses consideration about seakeeping in ship design and analyzes methods for full-scale trials.
