I am in the process of trying to take out Australian Registration
of my 2003 Hunter
44DS, They have asked for a Builders certificate, which I have e-mailed of to Hunter
in the hope that they can fill it in for me, but if they can't, they have asked me for a Statutory Declaration with a heap of questions. Most of them I have been able to find but I am bot sure of the following or were to find them, any help would be great,
Number of Bulkheads...Watertight and Non watertight?
This is the vertical distance measured (to two decimal places) from the top of the keel
to the top of the freeboard deck
beam at side amidships. (Amidships means the vertical plane situated at the middle of the length of the ship and at right angles to the centre line plane of the ship).
• In the case of a wooden ship or composite ship the top of the keel
is the lower edge of the keel rabbet. What is a keel rabbet????????????
The tonnage length of a ship is either
(a) a length equal to 96 per cent of the total length of the ship measured on a waterline that is at a distance, from the top of the keel, equal to 85 per cent of the least moulded depth
of the ship?????????????????
Any help would be much appreciated
