Plimsoll mark

Plimsoll mark

The Plimsoll line is a reference mark located on a ships

hull that indicates the maximum depth to which the vessel
may be safely immersed when loaded with cargo. This
depth varies with a ships dimensions, type of cargo, time
of year, and the water densities encountered in port and at
sea. Once these factors have been accounted for, a ships
captain can determine the appropriate Plimsoll line needed
for the voyage (see above image):
TF = Tropical Fresh Water

S = Summer

T = Tropical

W = Winter

F = Fresh Water

WNA = Winter North Atlantic

AB = Letters indicating the registration authority (American Bureau of Shipping in the image
shown; the circle with the line through it indicates whether or not the cargo is loaded evenly)

Freshwater allowance

The freshwater allowance (FWA) is the

difference in draught between a vessels
freshwater load line and saltwater load line. The
freshwater allowance will also be noted on the
vessels load line certificate.
