Good day sir, would like to know about differences of draft at marks & draft at perpendicular that is shown in loadicators. Which draft would you give to charterer, is it the draft at marks or draft at perpendicular(shown in a loadicator of ships when making cargo calculations). This is also the same when declared drafts before arrival port, which drafts are we going to declare.... Thank you sir..
For the purpose of declaring drafts to terminal, charter, pilot and any other authority always draft at marks are given. draft at perpendicular are always used for CALCULATION purposes only.
