    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

          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.
