In this video I am going to discuss about the Fresh Water Allowance, FWA. Well, to understand Fresh Water Allowance, let us first understand the purpose of Load Line. Vessel is loaded up to the required permissible load line to avoid overloading. There are various states of load line which I am going to discuss later on. So, the vessel is having the supposed required permissible load line and is floating in fresh water. Howehev, let us ship this water into the salt water. Now, let us discuss about density, also. The relative density of the fresh water is 1, which simply means that density of it is 1 t/cub.m. Similarly, the relative density of the salt water is 1.025 which means that the salt waters density is 1.025 t/cub.m...
