KEY TO THE REGISTER.

Vessels marked A are of the First Description -
Do ‘E or AE are of the Second Description }of the First Class,
Do. E are of the Second Class.
Do. I are of the Third Class.

The Stores of Wessels 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.

Wessels Restored to, or continued in the First Description of the First Class will have the number of Years for which they are restored or continued". 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 Öontinuation had been allowed.

Wessels, marked “S S.” with a date, in red, denote that they have been surveyed at that time in accordance with the Rules, Sec. 54—60.

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.47–3 yrs—.”

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