Boat Waterline Definition

BoatWiki - Definitions

Definition


A waterline can be defined in boating terns as the location where a boat's hull meets the surface of the water. This can vary depending on whether it boat is empty or loaded with passengers, cargo, furnishings, and other items that are not an integral part of the boat. It can also be affected by fresh or salt water and perhaps atmospheric conditions.

Meaning


The waterline serves as an indicator of how much hull surface remains before a boat loses buoyancy and becomes swamped or inoperable.

Context


Most boats have a demarcation line or stripe marked on the hull showing the waterline as determined by manufacturing standards.

Conclusion


A  boat's waterline should be monitored closely to ensure it remains afloat and can be safely operated within the appropriate parameters.
