Reserve buoyancy

Reserve buoyancy. The submerged part of a vessel provides it with buoyancy.

The volume of the enclosed spaces above the waterline is the reserve. They provide additional buoyancy as weights are loaded to immerse the vessel deeper.

Reserve buoyancy determines the depth to which the ship can be loaded and also the assignment of loadlines and freeboards.
