Abstract 

This International Standard specifies requirements for cockpits and recesses to be designated either as "watertight"

or as "quick-draining" on small craft of hull length up to 24 m.

It does not set requirements for the size and shape of a cockpit or recess, nor when or where it shall be used. It

only considers draining by gravity, and not by pumping or other methods.

NOTE 1 The term "quick-draining cockpit" has been chosen to differentiate from the common understanding of "self-draining

cockpit" where water may be drained overboard in certain conditions, but without specified draining speed, height of bottom or

sill, etc.

NOTE 2 Examples of single-plane cockpit bottoms are given in informative annex A.
