Shelter-ship

Shelter-ship is a transport vessel with two or more decks, the upper tween deck of which is equipped with special holes, which allows to exclude the volume of this tween-deck from the register capacity (so-called measuring holes) and thereby reduce the charges and duties levied from the vessel. Shelter vessels appeared at the end of the 19th century, when ship owners began to install lightweight structures and light walls above the upper deck in order to protect the cargo from the weather. Subsequently, to reduce the register capacity of the vessel in the hinged deck and the transverse bulkheads of the upper deck of the tweendeck that was formed above, steel holes were made (closed), which reduced the safety of the vessel's voyage, but provided the owner with a reduction in operating costs. But since the presence of even closed holes in the hull reduced the safety of the shelter ship, this led to the termination of the construction of such ships.
