  • (2) Subject to subsection (3), the minimum number of square metres in the total area of the freeing ports on each side of a well on a ship shall be determined by dividing the number of metres in the length of that well by 13.

  • (3) If the average height of a bulwark forming a well is less than 0.9 m, the total area of the freeing ports in the bulwark may be decreased by 0.004 m2 per metre length of bulwark for each 0.1 m by which the average height of the bulwark is less than 0.9 m.

  • (4) The freeing ports shall be distributed in a manner that achieves the maximum speed of drainage from the decks.

    • (a) at the ends of the rail by fastenings attached to the inside or ends of the rail; and
