Article 26


(1) Deck cargo is to be stowed in a way so as to provide clear view from the navigating bridge while transiting the Canal, as well as not to affect the vessel's stability.

(2) The deck cargo should not protrude more than half the vessel's breadth on any side, with a maximum of 15 meters on each side if breadth exceeds 30 meters.

(3) If the protrusion exceeds the maximum allowed, each case is to be studied separately and an additional due of 2% of the transit dues is levied on each foot or fraction of foot in excess.
