Hi Forum,

Will delete once ascertained.

I was wondering what these 2 holes/recesses are on the stern under the IMO number.

Thanks in advance.

Sunken bits as they are known, used the same way as the ones on the side of the hull.

Also often called "Dutch Bollards".  One over the other to better accommodate tug line at different drafts when fully loaded and in ballast.

Thanks for that. I was just a little curious as to how they were used.

I see no reason to remove the thread - and it is informative.
