This paper discusses the prediction of extreme values for total first and second-order responses of a floating structure moored in random seas. It is hard to estimate the extreme values from time series simulation or experimental data of limited length. Several methods of theoretical estimation of the extreme values are examined. They are the SRSS formula introduced by Naess (1987, 1989), the modified SRSS with a correlation parameter, the SRSS with Naess (1987, 1989) corection factor, the approximate SRSS (Naess, 1989), and the formula proposed by authors previously. The results of those methods are compared, and it is confirmed that the last one is very promising.
