Lesson 2

General Arrangement Plan
 depicts the division and arrangement of the ship
side view plan views of the most important decks


engine room. life boats) . loading gear. The views and sections display: division into compartments (tanks. holds) location of bulkheads location and arrangement of superstructure parts of the equipment (winches. bow thruster.

 Basic data included in the GAP: dimensions volumes of the holds tonnage deadweight engine power speed class .


tanktop e. superstructure . steering machinery l. bosun’s locker i. double bottom m. engine room k. tweendeck d. peak tank g.a. cofferdams n. upper deck or main deck b. chain locker h. upper hold and lower hold f. forecastle c. collision bulkheads j.

in sailing warships often a deck under the upper deck .a. usually but not always the weather deck. in some ships the highest deck of the hull. Upper deck or main deck  the principal deck of a vessel.

b. Forecastle  foremost part of the upper deck  usually raised above the main deck .

c. Tweendeck  space between decks – intermediate deck  divides the vessel into separate holds .

d. Tanktop  inside bottom of the vessel  the plating forming the inner bottom of a ship hull .

Upper hold / Lower hold  spaces that contain the cargoes .e.

Peak tank  foremost and aftermost spaces of the vessel  serve as storage spaces for ballast water  capable of absorbing part of the impact forces that are released in case of a collision .f.

g. Chain locker  storage for anchor chain .

h. Bosun’s locker  = Boatswain’s locker  serves as storage for ropes. paint and dunnage .

i. Collision bulkheads  foremost major watertight bulkhead  prevent the vessel from flooding in case of collision with another vessel  fireproof .

Engine room  = machinery space  watertight compartment  situated over the after peaktank  houses the main and auxiliary machinery .j.

this design maximizes the cargo carrying capacity of the vessel and situates the prime mover close to the propeller. minimizing equipment cost and problems posed from long shaft lines .j. Engine room  on a large percentage of vessels engine room is located near the bottom. and at the aft  usually comprises few compartments .

k. Steering machinery  gives the power for moving the rudder .

fresh water. lubricating oil.l. salt (ballast) water and potable water . Double bottom  provides strength and storage space for fuel.

Cofferdams  empty spaces / longitudinal and transverse separations between tanks  prevent leaking of liquids from one double bottom tank into another .m.

n. pantry . Superstructure  accommodation for the crew and passengers  messroom. galley.
