What does this refer to?
« on: May 04, 2015, 08:38:31 PM »

Aftship SB&PS

I was thinking starboard and port side. But it seems an odd way of annotating it. Of course it may mean something else entirely, I'm open to suggestions.

I thought Aftship was the moulded depth in meters at the the stern, there is also one for Midship.


The SB & PS is again in meters and is something to do with a dredging depth IIRC-Starboard and Portside.


I could be wrong though!
