RS LOAD LINE RULES FOR SEA—GOING SHIPS
|D O W N L O A D|
The Russian Register's Load Line Rules for Sea-Going Ships, the latest release. The main content of this rulebook is arranged in eight major chapters. The opening chapter provides some general information about the document, the definitions of the main terms, surveys and certificates, navigational areas etc.
The second chapter is devoted to the load line markings commonly in place on the vessels involved in international voyages, while the third chapter provides conditions of freeboard assignment for such ships. The remaining chapters of the document deal with the minimum freeboard assignment, MODU load line markings, special requirements applicable to the vessels assigned timber freeboards and to the vessels of smaller size (i.e. less than 24 meters).
The appendix providing the information about the zones, areas and seasonal periods is closing the document. Needless to say that the rulebook, apart from being a must-have one for the inspectors of Russian Register, is recommended to be possessed on board any RS-classed vessel so that the crew members can be well aware about its content and maintain their vessel accordingly and in full compliance with the requirements.
