The subject vessel was built in 1992 with bilge keels. They were long metal fins running horizontally along a sizeable section
of each side of the vessel’s hull. They were located at the turn of the bilge, and were not on the vertical plane of the shell-plating,
and they protruded. Their main purpose was to stabilise the vessel at sea by reducing her rolling motion. There was no Class
requirement to fit bilge keels to ships but most vessels had them.
