The “Plimsoll Mark”
Our name is derived from a universal nautical risk measurement tool revered for its simplicity and effectiveness. Known as the “Plimsoll Mark” or “Plimsoll Line”, it is the line on the side of a ship’s hull, to which vessels can be safely loaded taking into consideration various types of oceans and climates based on water density and temperature. The name “Plimsoll” honors Samuel Plimsoll, a member of the British Parliament in the mid 1800’s and an outspoken proponent for the safety of ships and their crews. His advocacy and ingenuity revolutionized shipping standards and has assured the safe passage of ships around the globe.

Today, Plimsoll Marks can be found amidships on the port and starboard sides of almost any large ocean going vessel. Enduring and still relevant today, the Plimsoll Mark has helped save thousands of lives and continues to ensure ships are safely loaded and balanced regardless of the type of climate and ocean they traverse. The original Plimsoll Mark was a circle with a horizontal line through it to show the maximum draft of a ship. Additional marks have been added over the years, allowing for different water densities and expected sea conditions.
