564 - 2/08 - Draught Surveys - Egypt
It has been noticed that some local surveyors conducting draught surveys in Egypt tend to use a form consisting of two columns; a left-hand column for initial survey measurements, prior to cargo operations, and a right-hand column for final survey measurements, on completion of cargo operations. Below is an example form that has been signed and stamped by the master before the final draught survey has been performed (ship name, registry and IMO number digitally removed).
