IT'S ALL ABOUT BALANCE
New Casual Apparel Line
As with ships, when we as individuals are in balance we feel safe and prepared to weather life's storms, everyday challenges and circumstances.
Samuel Plimsoll 1824-1898 was a member of Parliament in Britain who fought against unsafe maritime practices, specifically the overloading of ships. His efforts led to the passage of the Merchant Shipping Act in 1876 which required ships to have marks indicating safe load lines. The Plimsoll Mark as seen on ships to this day is the result of Plimsoll's unrelenting efforts to raise safety standards and to protect life at sea for the merchant mariner.
The letters on the Plimsoll Mark signify: LTF: Lumber, Tropical, Fresh; LF: Lumber, Fresh; LT: Lumber, Tropical; LS: Lumber, Summer; LW: Lumber, Winter; LWNA: Lumber, Winter, North Atlantic; LR: Lloyds Register of Shipping; TF: Tropical Fresh Water Mark; F: Fresh Water Mark; T: Tropical Load Line; S: Summer Load Line; W: Winter Load Line; WNA: Winter Load Line, North Atlantic
