The Stores of Vessels are designated by the Figures 1 and 2 :

1. Signifying that the Vessel is well and sufficiently found.

2. That she is deficient in either quantity or quality. Vessels RESTORED to, or CONTINUED on the Character A, will have the number of Years for which they are restored or continued inserted separately under the number originally assigned, in the tenth column; where the term in the latter case has expired, the Letter “C” only will be placed before the figure denoting the number of Years for which Continuation had been allowed.

Vessels marked "S.S.” with a date, in red, denote that they have been surveyed at that time in accordance with the Rules, Sec. 60.

The mark (B. S.] denotes that the vessel is classed subject to Biennial Survey. The mark | Expl. B.S.) denotes that the vessel is built experimentally, and classed subject to Biennial Survey. See Section 31.

British North-American built vessels, opened as required by the Rules, Sec. 63, will be marked in the Register “ S.S” with the number of years that may elapse before they are again opened, and the year of survey ; thus“ S.S.54—3Yrs

When the Rules, Sec. 63, have not been complied with, they will be marked in the Register ; thus—“ Not Op." and the Character omitted.

When the term “almost Rebuilt” is used, it implies large repairs, but that the
Rules for Restoration have not been fully complied with.
The figures in the Tenth Column, to vessels in the

Æ Class, imply that they were originally classed A, for that number of Years. The cipher 0 in this Column indicates that (from inferior construction, there were no“ number of Years first assigned.”

Ships built under Special Survey will be shown by a Cross, thus +.
