Freeboards greater than minimum ( Regulation 2(5) ) (IACS interpretation LL.51)

 Where freeboards are not required to be increased, because of such considerations as strength (regulation 1), location of shell doors (regulation 21) or sidescuttles (regulation 23) or other reasons, then:

on the actual freeboard deck may be a required for a superstructure deck, provided the summer freeboard is such that the resulting draught will not be greater than that corresponding to the minimum freeboard calculated from an assumed freeboard deck situated at a distance equal to a standard super-structure height below the actual freeboard deck. Similar considerations may be given in cases of draught limitation on account of bow height (regulation 39).
