2.2.3. in the case if there is no agreement on the construction of the vessels, 1 January 2003 or later at one of the following conditions is fulfilled: are Carignan; is enclosed structure that identifies the beginning of construction of the ship; is assembled construction, which is the smaller of the values — 50 tonnes, or 1% of the estimated weight of the design of the ship.
2.3. ' existing fishing vessel ' means a fishing vessel which is not a new fishing vessel.
2.4. all fishing vessels "means that the provision applies to existing fishing vessels, to new fishing vessels, regardless of the date of construction.

The ships are designed with a Kona struktīv a rake of keel the waterline on which this length is measured shall be parallel to the waterline struktīv Kona.
2.7. "bow and aft perpendicular" is fixed length "L". Bow perpendicular corresponds to priekšvadņ the front edges on the waterline on which the length is measured.
2.8. "breadth (B)" has the greatest width of the vessel, which measured the length of the ship in the middle between the outer edges of the frame ships with metal lining and between the outer surfaces of the hull ships with a lining of other materials.
2.9. "the theoretical side height" is the vertical distance from the horizontal keel to the lower working deck surface at the side of the ship: ships with a rounded 2.9.1. Board and side connection, the theoretical side of the height measured to the deck and the side of the intersection of theoretical line continuation;
2.9.2. the case where the deck has stairs and elevated part is above the height of the theoretical side of the measuring point, the theoretical side of the height measured to the working deck forward of the lower part of a notional line, parallel to the deck of the elevated part.
2.10. "side-height (D)" means the theoretical side height at the midpoint of the length of the ship.
2.11. "the deepest operating waterline" means the waterline corresponding to the maximum draught of the ship.
2.12. "the length of the ship the midpoint" of length L is the midpoint.
2.13. "middle section" is the intersection of the hull of the ship length in the middle with the theoretical plane perpendicular to the waterline.
2.14. "the wedge line" means a line parallel to the line of the keel, which the length of the ship passing through the midpoint of the horizontal keel: 2.14.1. the upper edge of the ships with metal plating;
2.14.2. the wedge and external cladding stitching the bottom edge of the ships of wood or composite material external cladding;
2.14.3. Diametral plane of the vessel and the vessel's plating the external contour of the intersection line ships with external facings of other material than wood and metal.
2.15. "base line" is a horizontal line that the midpoint of the length of the ship crosses the keel line.
2.16. "job board" is the lowest continuous deck, above the deepest operating waterline and where fishing is carried out. If the craft is built with two or more continuous decks, IF you can accept the lowest of them as job board, if it is above the deepest operating waterline.
2.17. "superstructure" means the deck cover design on a job board across the Board in width, or garensien are not more than 0.04 B from the ship's side plating.
2.18. "Enclosed superstructure" means a body, if: 2. it forms a sufficiently effective wall;
2.18.2. entrance openings in walls are fitted with permanently attached to watertight door that is as durable as the wall structure and is open to both from the inside and from the outside;
2.18.3. other openings in walls are equipped with enough effective conclusion.
2.19. "superstructure deck" is a continuous or a partial deck, which form a superstructure, deck or other structure of the House roof and is situated not less than 1.8 m height above the working deck. Deck house and other coverings that are located lower than 1.8 m above the working deck, is treated as a job board.
2.20. "height of a superstructure" is the minimum distance from the sides of the body working deck beams to the upper edge of the superstructure deck beams to the upper edge.
2.21. "splash-proof" means any State of the sea water can escape into the vessel.
2.22. "Watertight" means the ability of information by kon not to put through the water in any direction, at any water pressure that this construction is designed.
2.23. "Collision" is the waterproof bow divider, which meet the following requirements: 2.23.1. must be on a partition: not less than 0.05 of the bow perpendicular to L, but not more than 0.08 L vessels with a length of 45 m and longer; no closer as perpendicular to the frontal 0.05 L, but not more than 0.05 L plus 1.35 m ships with a length of less than 45 m; in any case not less than 2 m perpendicular to the front, but on the ships with a length of less than 24 m — not closer than 1 m perpendicular to the front.
