The present guide has been specifically designed and released to assist marine surveyors and ship masters tin ensuring that they perform the draught surveys in the maximum correct and accurate manner. We know that the accurate measurement of the dry bulk cargo can considerably minimize the risk of potential shortage claims and associated disputes. The authors of this publication have outlined the established and proven methods and corrections for the draught surveys to be conducted to the required level of accuracy. The content of the guide provides them with the formulas and recommended procedures for nearly every situation that can be encountered in the course of the draught survey. The authors have also included the UN ECE forms for the draught surveys for reference. The guide starts with short introduction and description of the practical procedure of the draught survey. Apart from that, the main content of the guide has three parts covering the information required for the surveys, assessment of the underwater volume of the ship, and deductibles. A glossary is there at the end of the guide containing and explaining all terminology. Five appendices provide some valuable additional information, such as the equipment, information and corrections check lists, metric/imperial conversions and check list of reservations.
