Relaxation bow height (10-46)

Under regulation 39.3 of the International Convention on Load Lines, 1966 and the 1988 Protocol thereto, the following relaxations of the bow height are permitted for vessels with a national safety certificate.

For these vessels, including pontoons in the condition ‘manned working’, a reduced bow height is allowed under restrictions in

  • Sailing area (for the definitions see footnote, to be included on the (exemption) certificate)
     
  • Maximum significant wave height
     

According to the table below.

Matching max significant wave height

Permissible reduced bow height1

< 15 miles2

< 4.0 m.

70%

< 15 miles3

< 2.0 m.

50%

 

In the past NSI has granted to some vessels a reduction in bow height, based on maximum wind force according to the table hereunder:

 

Sailing area

Max wind force in Beaufort

Permissible reduced bow height

< 15 miles

7 Beaufort

70%

< 5 miles

5 Beaufort

50%

 

For existing cases this practice can be continued.
