: the depth of a ship in the water. The vertical distance between the waterline and the keel, in the u.s. expressed in feet, elsewhere in meters.
Drayage: charge made for local hauling by dray or truck.
Air draught (or draft) is the distance from the surface of the water to the highest point on a vessel, similar to the "deep draught" of a vessel which is measured from the surface of the water to the deepest part of the hull below the surface, ...
OR DRAUGHT: The measurement of how deeply a boat sits in the water.
DRY ROT: A fungus decay which causes wood to become soft and to fall apart.
DUCKBOARD: The wooden floorboards found on many yachts’ cockpit soles

Taking into account the in relation to the available depth of water will help avoid running aground. If you are at a slower speed in shallow water, you may avoid running hard aground and damaging your vessel.
1) How deep the water must be to float a boat.
2) The belly or chord depth of the sail, its fullness
3) The depth of the boat below the waterline
4) The amount of water the boat draws from the water line to its greatest extremity below ...
- the vertical distance from the waterline to the lowest point of the keel; it is the minimum depth of water in which a vessel will float.
Forward- aboard a boat, the direction to the front, to the bow.
Draft - how deep a boat settles in the water, the depth from the waterline to the bottom of her hull. "She's shallow on the draft" = a ship that can safely sail shallow water. A ship's draft will change if she takes on or lets off heavy cargo.
- The depth of water required to float a pleasure craft freely.
Fenders - Devices used to protect the side of a pleasure craft and absorb shock.
Gale Warning - Sustained winds at speeds from 34 to 47 knots inclusive.
"Draft" is the vertical measurement from the waterline to the lowest portion of the bottom of the boat, usually either the keel or propeller.
The depth of the vessel below the water line, measured vertically to the lowest part of the hull, propeller, or other reference point
Draft: Water depth required to float the vessel.
Drogue: A surface anchor to hold bow or stern to wind.
How far down the ship sits in the water when it's loaded with people and supplies.
Vertical distance a boat penetrates the water.
A parachute-like sea anchor.
1) The depth of a boat, measured from the deepest point to the waterline. The water must be at least this depth, or the boat will run aground. 2) A term describing the amount of curvature designed into a sail.
The depth of water which a pleasure craft requires to float freely.
Winds with speeds less than 12 knots as defined by Environment Canada.

Ease- To loosen. To let out the line of a sail.
The minimum depth of water in which a vessel will float.

or draught - The depth of a ship's keel below the waterline.
Ebb - A receding current, when the falling tide recedes out to sea and the water level lowers.
draft or draught - The vertical distance between the vessel's waterline and its lowest point; the lowest point may be the hull itself or an attachment (such as a rudder or propeller). The minimum water depth in which a boat will float.
(1) The depth of the boat below the waterline; the amount of vertical distance from a boats water line to the bottom of it's keel.
(2) The depth of water necessary to float a vessel
(3) The belly or chord depth of the sail, its fullness ...
the depth of the boat at its lowest point, also the depth or fullness of the sail
(boat) One designed to float in less water than the average for her size. Usually tends to be beamy.
Draft is either 6 feet, 6 inches or 5 feet, 3 inches depending on your choice of keel. The deep fin shows an extended trailing edge fillet, which I would assume is to facilitate the mating surface at the hull for both keel models.
The vertical depth from the bottom of the keel to the top of the water ...
The amount of vertical distance from a boat's water line to the bottom of it's keel. This is the depth of water required to float a vessel.
- The depth of water a boat draws.
EASE - To slacken or relieve tension on a line.
Draft - Depth of the keel
Draft - Least depth of water needed to allow a boat to clear the bottom
Draw Bridge Signal - one long blast and three short blasts ...
- The depth of water a boat draws.
Dry Sailing - When boats, especially smaller racers, are kept on shore instead of being left anchored or moored, they are dry sailed. The practice prevents marine growth ...
Draft restrictions relate to speed in several ways. If there is little underkeel clearance, it is likely that shallower water is nearby.
