Scuppers and Bulwarks

Postby sankar_mariner » Mon Feb 11, 2013 2:01 am

* why scuppers are located in close proximity to superstructure where as freeing ports are generally located at open areas of the weather deck.

* why oil tankers have ship's side guard rails abreast of cargo tanks for reasons other than the safety of personnel.

*what is the difference between open bulwark and floating bulwark / how do they look like ( please suggest some website details where i can get some drawings of these )
