The author describes ways in which steel may be damaged in transit and discusses how coils of steel should be arranged in the vessel, preferably only two tiers high. The positioning of the coils is explained in detail and the author recommends that special attention should be paid to the stowage of steel in the forward part of the ship where the effects of heavy pitching are more pronounced.
