BoatWiki - Definitions

Definition


Vessel admeasurement can be defined in Coast Guard terms as the gathering of a vessel's dimensions in order to determine it's tonnage in terms of cargo capacity. This includes such things as the length, width, and depth as specified by the U.S. Coast Guard

Meaning


The admeasurement process is necessary in order to determine the net and gross tonnage for Coast Guard documentation purposes. There are different means of doing this including a simplified and formal admeasurement.

Context


The type of measurements are determined by the vessel's size and configuration. It also determines the minimum requirements of 5 net tons in order for a vessel to qualify for documentation.

Conclusion


As with most things regarding vessel documentation, the measurements must be precise and must be provided by an approved form or measuring service agency. Further information about admeasurements can be found in BoatWiki.
