NO SUBSTITUTE FOR BULKHEADS?

This article reprints a letter to the editor from the former Engineer Surveyor-in-Chief of the UK Department of Industry. In it, the writer makes a strong plea for the installation of transverse bulkheads as being indispensable to avoiding longitudinal flooding of car spaces on ro/ro ferries. He reviews all the existing recommendations for improving ro/ro damage stability, and concludes that no solution is as effective as that of the bulkheads.
