How about Internal Forward Bunker but then that wouldn't make any sense because there's no such thing as an external bunker. Plus, why would there be a forward bunker because that would inhibit the cargo hold surely?

I'd say "Forward Ballast".

Hi matt,

Looking at it's position I'd say it denotes the separation between "forward ballast tank" (FB) and number 1 tank or space. The line between is showing where the bulkhead runs thwartships.

If you go to the Capital Shipmanagement website you can download a layout plan of the tanker in question. it will show you that these show the separation between the forepeak tank and No.1 ballast tank (stbd).
