    I passed your questions to an ex-seafaring colleague, holder of an Extra Master’s Certificate. He suggests that the formula DV1/3, would be one third of the diplaced volume in pounds converted to cubic metres by the formula given:
    (Weight in Pounds/64)*0.0283168.

    He invited me to contact his friend and sailing colleague, the co-author of the book mentioned [in the original post], Commander Peter Bruce RN. However, you may wish to contact him directly on http://www.peterbruce.co.uk, mentioning the name of my old colleague, David Arnold. Incidentally, the latter survived a 130degree roll, without capsizing aboard Morning Cloud, during the 1979 Fastnet race.
