Midships

Midships is the point half-way between the forward perpendicular and the aft perpendicular at the design draught, or the centre of the ship longitudinally. The sectional area of the submerged portion of hull at this point is used in some coefficients of form calculations. Classification rules will reference the midships and the midships region for the purpose of scantling calculations.
