Margin Line

The margin line is an imaginary line drawn parallel and below the bulkhead deck at a distance of 3" (76mm). The margin line is used in floodable length and damage stability calculations as a limiting factor of hull immersion, as well as in some stability analysis's as a limiting factor (Classification or regulators may require freeboard and deck edge immersion values to be at the margin line).
