Note: Close-up survey of transverse bulkheads to be carried out at four levels:
Level (a) - Immediately above the inner bottom and immediately above the line of gussets (if fitted) and shedders for ships without lower stool.
Level (b) - Immediately above and below the lower stool shelf plate (for those ships fitted with lower stools), and immediately above the line of the shedder plates
Level (c) - About mid-height of the bulkhead.
Level (d) - Immediately below the upper deck plating and immediately, adjacent to the upper wing tank, and immediately below the upper stool shelf plate for those ships fitted with upper stools, or immediately, below the topside tank."
