Q. 1) What do you mean by squat ?

X

    0

    The squat effect is the hydrodynamic phenomenon by which a vessel moving quickly through shallow water creates an area of lowered pressure that causes the ship to be closer to the seabed than would otherwise be expected. This phenomenon is caused when water that should normally flow under the hull encounters resistance due to the close proximity of the hull to the seabed. This causes the water to move faster, creating a low-pressure area with lowered water level surface

                MARPOL is an international regulation made for prevention of marine pollution
                In 1973 IMO has organised a conference in which they have passed two protocols in P-1 they made a report from the past accidents caused by the harmfull substances and in P-11 they introduce the aritarbution.this conference conducted from 19th oct to 2nd nov 1973. And in 1978 IMO again called a conference and passed five different annex from annex-1 to annex-5 and in 1997 they introduce the annex-6.

                  When a ship is delivered from the yard (with machinery, appurtenances, fixtures) its weight without stores, fuel, crew, etc is called "Light ship". Anything weight which is not a part of Light Ship is called deadweight. Eg Crew, fuel, stores, ballast, cargo, lubes etc.

                    Deadweight tonnage (often
                    abbreviated as DWT for
                    deadweight tonnes) is the
                    displacement at any loaded
                    condition minus the lightship
                    weight. It includes the crew,
                    passengers, cargo, fuel, water,
                    and stores. Like Displacement, it
                    is often expressed in long tons or
                    in metric tons.
