Scantlings: The dimensions or sizes of the frames, girders, etc. A FULL-SCANTLING VESSEL: The position of the load line on seagoing vessels depends on the strength of the hull, provided that a reasonable margin of buoyancy (reserve buoyancy) is left.

A full scantling vessel is one in which the scantlings correspond to the above mentioned margin of buoyancy and in which full strength of the ship's structure is maintained up to the upper most continuous deck of the vessel.

357. Ton, displacement: The unit of displacement expressed in tons which is equal to the volume of liquid in which the vessel is afloat. The weight of water displaced by a vessel afloat which is equal to the weight of the vessel. In salt water one (l) long ton is equal to 35 cubic feet of volume and in fresh water one long ton is equal to 36 cubic feet of volume. The vessel's displacement at any condition of loading is equal to the sum of the light displacement plus the deadweight. 358. Tonnage, light displacement: The weight of the vessel in tons when unloaded or the weight of the ship itself. It includes the hull and all permanent fittings, engines and boilers, shafting and propellers, water in boilers, condensers, and pipes, feed water, and permanent ballast. 359.

Tonnage, deadweight: The vessel's lifting capacity or the number of long tons (2240lbs.) that a vessel will lift when loaded in salt water to her Summer Freeboard Marks. It is the numerical difference in long tons (2240lbs.) between the loaded displacement of the vessel in salt water and the light displacement of the vessel. Deadweight tonnage is the best indicator of the cargo carrying capacity of the vessel in long tons because the ship's officer knows the quantity of ballast and consumables aboard the vessel at any given time. Sometimes also referred to as deadweight tonnage. Deadweight capacity includes: Crew, passengers, luggage, provisions and stores, fresh water in storage tanks, service tanks, and pipage, furniture, bedding, napery, cooking utensils and apparatus, crockery, plate, and cutlery, mails and specie, parcels, cargo, coal in bunkers and on the fire grates, fuel oil in tanks and piping, lubrication oils in tanks and piping, fresh and salt water ballast in tanks and piping, spare gear, bilge water and ashes. 361. Tonnage, equipment:Equipment tonnage is a type of measurement tonnage since one equipment ton is equal to various units of space (cubic volume). It differs from Gross tonnage in that there are no exempted spaces, and therefore, a truer criterion of the internal size or volume of the vessel. Equipment tonnage is used by the American Bureau of Shipping (Classification Society) as a basis for determining the scantlings (size and strength) of such ground tackle as anchors and cables, mooring wires and winches. 262. Tonnage, gross: A gross ton is a unit of capacity of 100 cubic feet to the ton (2.83 cubic meters) which is used for ascertaining the legal or register tonnage of the vessel. Also called gross register or register tonnage. Used for regulatory purposes. Gross tonnage or gross register tonnage may be defined as the total internal volume of a vessel in units of 100 cu. feet to the ton, less the volume of certain spaces which are EXEMPTED to encourage the use of spaces devoted to safety of the ship or the comfort of the crew and certain spaces because they are not 11 closedMassachusetts Maritime Academy 23

in". The actual cubical contents of any space is measured in accordance with prescribed methods and formulae as originated by Moorsom, which are incorporated in the measurement rules of the leading maritime nations. Spaces on or above the upper deck which are exempted: Companion ways, galley, machinery spaces, skylights, public water closets, wheelhouse, air and light space, passenger spaces above the first deck which is not a deck to the hull, open superstructures, open shelter decks. The lack of uniformity in gross tonnage measurement for vessels of various nations results from not only various methods of measurement, but also from the number of spaces which are exempted from measurement. The inception of Suez and Panama Canal Tonnages attempts to equate all vessels to standard tonnage rules based on the Moorsom principles for the purpose of canal tolls. Since some spaces are exempted it therefore follows that gross tonnage does not represent the true internal capacity of the vessel. 363. Tonnage, net: Net tonnage may be defined as gross tonnage less the volume of certain specified DEDUCTED spaces which are not available for the carriage of cargo or the accommodation of passengers or spaces intended for revenue earning. It is the Net Register Tonnage upon which taxes are levied. Spaces which are deducted from gross tonnage are:crew accommodations, private water closets, Master's cabin, anchor gear, chart room and radio room, boatswain's storerooms, propelling machinery spaces. Net tonnage deducted spaces are easily identified by the words "Certified" is cut into the main beam when entering the space. 364. Tonnage Opening: tonnage rating.
