As every student of naval architecture knows from the course, the "Plimsoll Line" is a special mark placed on a side shell of a ship indicating to what level the ship can legally be loaded to ensure safe sailing. It is clear that different ships have different levels at which they float, therefore the location of the Plimsoll line will be different from one vessel to another, depending on the type of the vessel or boat.
It should also be noted that the level the line is marked at will also be changing according to the season and the water the vessel is sailing in, i.e. fresh or salt water. Watch this short introductory video and you will supplement your theoretical knowledge of the load lines with some visual information which will help you to understand the subject much better and share with others.
